Bold Colors


Just playing around with some bright, bold colors today to go with this GORGEOUS sunshine outside!! I used up a bunch of scraps for this card - which is always a good thing!! The striped paper and the 2 flower centers are both Basic Grey (Color Me Silly, Phoebe and Romani lines) the orange dotted background is from a K&Company Matte pad (Hopscotch) - I really LOVE these pads!!! They have a little texture to them and are double sided.
I used Big Pieces from the 2007 winter mini catalog. I like using these designs as flowers - they hae a really retro look to them! The stem was made with the Faux Ribbon set from Papertreyink.com.

I just love the 14th of the month because I know that there will be 2 new Dirty Girls revealed on SCS - plus a gallery full of cool projects AND I know there will be a new Papertreyink set that I'll NEED to purchase. Plus I saw on Nichole's Blog that they will be carrying a new white cardstock too. I'm gonna be all over that because I've looked far and wide for a nice smooth white cardstock that is a heavier weight than SU. Hopefully this will be it!!

Let me know what you think of this card...

A beautiful card. I love your bold color concoction. I told myself I wasn't going to get a PaperTrey set this month, and then there I was ordering away as soon as it was posted! Can't wait to try the new paper, either.
