Onto the details...I started with a bright pink 5X7 cardstock card by American Crafts. I covered the front with Making Memories Slice specialty paper, Shimmer Aqua Dot. Next I used my Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge to create my diecut flourish out of the Girls' Paperie Jubilee Paper. One side is floral, and the other side is pink with text. Both sides of the paper are so fabulous, I decided I would incorporate both! After cutting the diecut, I adhered the floral negative space onto the card. I then flipped the flourish onto the pink text side and adhered it with foam squares to give extra dimension and also expose some more of the yummy aqua dot paper underneath. Next, I used Webster's Aqua Trim to give the color some extra pop. I glued the crepe paper star in the center, also by GP. I then took some satin robin egg blue ribbon from Michael's and created the word "shining' on top of it using Cheeky Shimmer Stickers from Making Memories. Lastly, I added the text stickers at the top left...from GP's Vintage Whimsy Sticker Market. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I think I will give it to my niece Allison for her upcoming 10th birthday. It would look very cute in her room on a bulletin board or something.
I hope I have inspired you to create today! As for the actual card sketch and other fantastically "bright" cards, please be sure to stop over at http://www.twistedsketches.com/!
