Bright and Cheery!

Good morning! Really bright colors aren't normally my thing,,,,,although I find myself drawn more and more to them lately!

I am fixing to order me some of the Echo Park Country Drive paper that I really have fallen in love with! And that has some lovely bright colors!

Anywho, looking at that online got me in the mood, so here's a bright card,,,,,

The paper is about  3 years old LOL. It's Making Memories paper I've had  in my stash since FOREVER. I'm pretty sure it's the FIRST stack I ever bought.

The roses were an experiment that I really like the result of. I rolled one of Spellbinders spiral blossom 1, and then nested THAT inside two of the largest petals of Spellbinders Rose Creations after shaping them with a ball stylus. I then took a third set of petals and cut them off their base, and stuck the petals kind of willy nilly into the extra 2 sets of petals, if that made any sense. It gave me a nice LARGE full rose, and I really like the effect! I did the same for the yellow rose, although I cut off part of the spiral before rolling, wanting a smaller full rose.

I've used my brand new spellbinders dies, Romantic Rectangles, and OH MY GOSH, I love them,,,,,they are HUGE and the largest is the perfect size for this 5x7 card. Easy peasy!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!
