A bright smile with Happy Day by Stampin' Up

The sun is shining, my daughter and I have just come back from a sizzling zumba session, we're all infected with Brazil fever... what is a girl to do? Reach for Stampin' Up's most vibrant colours and make a card of course!  Feel the heat in this one:

I had a little of the Gingham Garden washi tape left and wondered what it would look like on lush Strawberry Slush card stock. Adding a black card base and sentiment and a bright yellow flower created this hot, gypsy look.

These colours are so bright and happy and you'll find the washi tape on Stampin' Up's Retiring Accessories List, a bargain at just £3.15 for these three fab designs! Smile? Oh, go on then!

The Pansy punch has a gorgeous coordinating stamp set, Flower Shop, but for this card I punched a flower straight out of plain Daffodil Delight card stock. The centre of the flower was decorated with one of the in colour Boutique Details. I adore these and now you can find them on the Stampin' Up Retiring Accessories List, reduced by 30% - now only £5.78! Another reason to smile!

I'll be linking this card up with Freshly Made Sketches where I was inspired by this fabulous sketch:

I was busy in the kitchen at the weekend when I heard my daughter calling from the living room. "Come here!" she called. "Come quickly, it's urgent!" I dropped everything and ran through to her. "Look!" she said, indicating the computer screen.

This is what she wanted to show me:

"How is this urgent?" I said. "But it's so fluffy!" she explained.

See you tomorrow,
