A Happy Birthday Bursting with Color!!



I pulled out an old Papertrey set yesterday and decided to ink it up:)!!  The set is Green Thumb...and it has some wonderful images!!  Well...I MEANT for this to be a lot cleaner and simpler, but it still has clean lines and quite a bit of white showing, but it kind of took on a life of it's own as I kept putting it together...
It's so funny...we inspire others and then those that we inspire, inspire US!!!  Susan O....if you're reading this...this card is because of you:)!!  I LOVE bright, bold colors...and this card's colors just make me soooo
happy and I love all the circles!!!  I stamped the bursts and stems, dotted with matching rhinestones and did a ribbon treatment I had done on another birthday card, which is great when you can't decide which color to use....just use them all:)!! I added a Paper Smooches sentiment and was going to leave it, but it looked too "plain"...needed a bit more color...  I decided to add a 1/2 cut panel adorned with matching colored strips...and why a separate panel???...so I could emboss it with dots similiar to those on the bursts on the main panel....now I felt REALLY happy with all that color!!  The colors I used were: Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun, Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
