Sun-Shiny Bouquet

Hello, Shirley here today!  Sometimes when the weather is gloomy and the sun is not shining, it is nice to have a little pick me up whether you receive a cheerful card or just sit down and make one.

Just making a card and thinking of who I will send it to makes my gloomy days brighter. Cheerfulness was on my mind today as I picked the sun-shiny colors of my card.

I started out with my white card base that is cut at 4 3/4 X 5. I added the next layer Bluebell Stardream Metallic paper cut at 4 1/2 X 4 3/4, which I adhered to my card base. Next I cut a piece of white card stock 4 X 4 1/2.  I embossed it with Swiss Dots embossing folder, (but you could use the Dots folder by Crafts Too). I added my yellow checked ribbon and adhered this layer to my Bluebell Stardream Metallic mat.

Now we get to the part I like, that is where we get to decorate the card front and make it pretty. Some days I like a clean card, but today I wanted to gussy it up a little.

I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Beautiful Borders die to cut the border from the Bluebell Stardream Metallic  paper. I attached it to the left side of my card.

I then took another piece of the Bluebell Stardream Metallic paper and cut a decorative oval with the Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die. I used the JustRite Botanical Medallions and Banners stamp set to stamp the image on white card stock. I colored my image with Copic markers, used an oval die to cut out the image. I adhered the image to the elegant oval frame which I attached on the card with Joy Small Foam Pads.

Thank you for taking a look at my card today!

Oh Shirley! We have a gloomy day here today too, but your sunshiney bouquet sure picked me up as soon as I saw it!! Those bright and cheerful colors, and the great embossed background, the cool border die, and the floral oval were the perfect picks to make such a HAPPY CARD!
