Bright and Breezy

Not quite sure why that title sprung to mind, I just find this colour combination quite tropical with the turquoise, orange and pink.

I started making it yesterday with a vague idea of what I wanted to achieve but no definite purpose - like a lot of things in my life lately LOL!

This morning I popped into my old workplace for a 'pre-birthday' morning tea and the card took on a whole new purpose!   I came home with renewed enthusiasm and turned it into a thank you card for al my friends there, thanks for the lovely cake, biscuits (cookies) and finger food - it was delicious as usual!   (My birthday is actually tomorrow but as my parents are arriving then the morning tea was brought forward - thanks guys!)

So, back to the card....

Lots of fun stamping the flowers and punching them out, double-punched a border, punched a couple of flowers and here is the result.

What I used:

Card:  Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, White.

Ink:  Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black.

Stamp Sets:  Eastern Blooms, Sincere Salutations

Tools and other fun stuff:  1" Circle punch, Wide Oval punch, Scalloped Circle punch, Scalloped Border punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Basic Pearls, Square Lattice embossing folder, Stampin' dimensionals.


  1. Your title bright and breezy works for me and your card. Gorgeous colours as usual.

  2. oh what a great card - yes it makes you think of a tropical holiday!!
    by the way - happy birthday!! (mines tomorrow so you have share it with some great company! lol)
