Avery Elle April AEI♥U Challenge

So.. no minute like the last minute, right? I've been having way too much fun creating today and just HAD to participate in the Avery Elle April AEI♥U Challenge! The picture is AMAZING! Here is the inspiration photo that I started with...

Look at those brilliant, warm, happy colors! And the pop of silver brought in by the chairs...*sigh* I love it ALL! Here is the card I created using the Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds stamps and Rounded Diamonds Elle-ments Dies.

You Brighten My Day>

LOVE the colors!!! I really do. Happy. They are just HAPPY! And warm, too, so that makes them extra fabulous. For reals, though. I used the following inks from Tsukineko on this card... take a deep breath, this is quite the list...HA!: VersaMagic Red Magic, VersaMagic Turquoise Gem, VersaMagic Key Lime, VersaMagic Sugarcane, Momento Tangelo, Momento Dandelion. The sugarcane adds that nuetral warm touch that holds all of the bright colors together and I just LOVE that! I heat embossed the sentiment from the Bright Days set with silver embossing powder just at the bottom of the card.

Have a Happy!!!
