Bold & Bright

Well, I am a little sick of red and green right now.  My WHOLE house is red and green.  The world is red and green.  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and I feel that it is really important to celebrate the birth of our Savior, but I am sick of red and I've branched out!!!

I have created a few cards to share with you that use some bold and bright colors and patterns.  I do hope you'll forgive me sharing two cards in one post--this is a busy time of year!  I know you understand. ;)

This first card is a Sponsor Spotlight for Inkspirational--a new challenge going live in January.  It uses Milk 'n' Coffee Digital Stamps and the image that I've used is called Lisbeth Loves Sunflower.  She's such a doll!!!

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~


I colored this little doll with Stampin' Up! markers.  Patterned papers are by Authentique and DCVW.  Rest of cardstock by SU! and rhinestones & ribbon from stash.  I think it turned out great!

The second card that I've got using bold & bright colors is made with a fabulous image from A Day For Daisies.  I LOVE this card!!!  It turned out better than I expected!

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~

I was totally inspired by the rhinestone swirl and the gold accents on the CASE card--such fabulous inspiration!  I also had tons of fun paper piecing this digi image with papers by DCVW.  I finished coloring the image with Stampin' Up! markers and a bit of glitter gel pen. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look at my cards!  Your visits mean the world to me!  Please join us at Inkspirational because we've got a giveaway going on!!!  Please join in the fun at these other challenges, too! Happy stamping, friends! :)
