SUNGLASSES, ANYONE??

WOW-WEE ZOWEE THESE ARE SOME BRIGHT COLORS HERE, chosen by my friend Vicki Dutcher...colors that make my lips freeze when I first hear them for sure!!  But see when I put my big girl panties on I can rise to the challenge!!  THE SUO blog challenge is also featured in this card, and that challenge was to use SALEABRATION goodies on our card, and I have used the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set for my sentiment, and the ribbon and button are from SALEABRATION!!  So I kinda killed two birds with one stone here, since time is short before we take our trip to see our kids in Africa!!  The count down is here, we leave in less then two weeks now, and I feel like I have still have a gazillion things to do!  Anyway, last week when I made the CAS valentine, I really did not like it - and it was my kinda colors, but this week, I would not have chosen these colors by myself at ALL, and yet I really love this card!! I really must challenge myself MORE!!! ;)  Okay - well - off to bed with me, several late nights in a row here and I am exhausted.  Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Dear Karen: I just discovered you when I was looking for some ideas on Pinterest using the new SU Secret Garden bundle and I have to say, that day was one of the luckiest days ever!!!!! I saw the amazing Swallowtail butterfly card you made and right there and then, I became your fan. You have an amazing talent and the kindness and selflessness to share it with the world. Thank you so much for that, for your tutorials and your incredible inspiration.
God Bless you.

I love the colours. My daughter commented only last night that I use green all the time. Went and checked... She was right, so this card came just at the right time.

Brights here I come.

By the way how was the white lace card created?
Thanks for sharing Zena

Gorgeous flowers, what stamp did you use and also what color are they. Really stunning with the white border edge all around it.
