Life is Most Definitely Sweet!!




Hey Everyone! do you like cards that are super colorful and bright? I think this card is a good example of bright and colorful! There sure is a lot going on with this card!! LOL!
I had a few scrap pieces from another project and decided to use them on this card. I felt the designer paper coordinated well with all the bright colors of the sundae.


The images are by Our Craft Lounge. OCL sells really cute stamps like this sundae set. How yummy!! You can gain a few pounds just looking at it! LOL! Luckily, it has zero calories unless maybe if you decide to actually eat it. How many calories do paper have?


Anyway. . .I colored my image using my Copic Markers, added a bit of Stickles and SU Crystal effects to parts of the image. What sundae don't have a bit of sparkle on it?

I also used a few paper clips to hold my ribbon. Office supply stores now sell really pretty colorful paper clips like the one shown on my card! It's a great accessory to tie your ribbon or hang a tag on.





Card Details:

Stamps: Our Craft Lounge - Life is Sweet
Paper: MME designer paper, SU Pixie Pink, Cool Caribbean
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Fiskar scallop scissors, Fiskar Scallop border, paper clips, grosgrain ribbons, paper cord, SU Word Window Punch, Stickles, SU Crystal Effects

Maria,

I love all the detail and talent you put into your cards!!! I can sit and stare at them for a long time and still pick out new elements or techniques you do such a wonderful job!!!

I want to come to your classes!!!

I really enjoyed the bright colors
(you see if you have not read it on my blog somwhere I have an allergy to the color brown!!!)

It is a horrible allergy and it will put me into an anaphalactic shock if I see or use to much of it!!!! LOL!!!!

I can look at it on others cards a love their projects, but for me it is a no no no to see it or use it in my home!!!! LOL.

So your bright card makes me smile!!!

Oh I love every other color under the sun, brights, bolds, pastels, subtles, earth tones minus the browns, and rich jewel tones, just not brown!!!! LOL. I give miss Janna a ton of grief about her contstant use of that "aweful, no good, yucky color" I tease her all the time and tell her in her comments I would say this card was totally fabulous if you had not ruined it with that aweful color!!!

But I really do like it when you and others use it, just not me!!!
