NewsFlash! I was selected as one of Dream Valley's Top 3!!!
Today I have a really bright and colorful card to share with you. Needless to say that playing on this side of the color wheel doesn't come naturally to me. I struggle getting the right combination in the right amount when using the lighter colors and I do the same when I use pastels.
Using these colors are definitely outside my comfort zone but I was encouraged (more like pushed) by my family and friends to give it a try. So I agreed to allow my grand-daughter select the colors for my next card and this is how it turned out.
I'm not that thrilled with it but according to my grand-daughter I did just fine and that's good enough for me, but you can leave me your thoughts...I'd love to read them.

I used Designer Paper from My Minds Eye and layered it up to add dimension. I also used a stamp and die set from Cuttlebug to create the flowers and used pop dots to make it appear to float.
Using a neat technique I learned from YouTube I was able to color the flowers with my copics without damaging the embossing the die created.
