A Bright Bouquet

A friend and work colleague of mine is currently traveling in Europe – lucky duck!  I made this card for her and gave it to her on the eve of her trip recently.

I am sure she is having an awesome time as I type this post.  She loves really bright colours and this stamp set just screams “Bright” to me.  It is really easy to make a card and impact with this stamp set.  A great set for those new to stamping as you can simple stamp up and cut out the flowers as I have done here and it doesn’t get much easier than that.

  It is a really good set to have in your stash as it is very versatile.  For example, I thought it is also the type of set to use to cheer someone up, for sending when the weather is cold, to scrapbook with or to celebrate an occasion.

On this card I also blinged it up by using the clear jewelled brads from the pretties kit and the stylized silver hodepodge.  Gives an elegance to the card which would have been lacking otherwise.  A girl can’t have too much Bling afterall!!!!
