Falling in Love with Bright Colors

It's Friends With Flair Friday and I am falling in LOVE! With bright colors, that is. Have you ever found yourself suddenly attracted to colors you NEVER used much in the past? I seem to have fallen head over heals in love with yellows, oranges, and I've even pulled out PURPLE! I don't know how that happened, but I'm not complaining, because, quite frankly...I'm kind of loving it. Just say'n.

I pulled out the Unity I Adore You set by Echo Park and instantly felt the urge to ink up that frame in YELLOW! Then, I had stripes on the mind. Why stripes? Well, that probably had something to do with this Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World! Just say'n. Although, while I loved the subtle soft-tone colors in the inspiration photo...I was in a brights mood, so I gave those suckers a bit of a boost!


So....that led to a ribbon background of a wide yellow silk, a narrow blue silk, and a simple white grosgrain placed in pretty, pretty stripes! The embossed woodgrain heart (MS punch) balanced out the bright colors nicely. Then I stamped the sentiment in blue (CTMH Moonstruck) and added just a *bit* of adorable twine (The Twinery) to accent it. YAY for cute bits of happy twine!

And that, my friends, is my card for you today. YAY! Oh...and for those keeping track...my breakfast this morning is quite traditional - bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on an english muffin. YAY for Dunks gift cards! HA! Have a VERY Happy Friday!

Jingle Out!

  2. You know what's the MOST fuN about seeing your cards? Having you show us where you get inspiration and how you weave that into what you create! VERY cool! The card is awesome! I DOOOO love a breakfast sammy. However, I NEVER eat before 10:30, so my 'breakfast sammies are usually for LUNCH! And - WHAT???? No CANDY this morning? Oh, goodness! Hugs to you, cutie-girl!
