You Make Life Bright


I like to use bright colours on my cards but this one hits a whole new level of bright even for me!!  I used the colours from PaperCrafts Connection's Colour Inspiration Challenge #9 and decided to just go big! I love that Woodware flower punch and it seemed to go with the crazy colours.  (Going to enter this in the 4 Crafty Chicks and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenges too.)
Despite the ridiculous humidity, I went for a run today for the first time in ages and I have a feeling that I'm going to be pretty darn sore tomorrow.  Not sure what possessed me but hopefully whatever it was will strike again sooner rather than later!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry) Stampin' Up, (Purple) Craft Supply
Stamp:  Unity Stamp Co
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Nestabilities Label 17)  Spellbinders
Punches:  (Pop Flower)  Woodware Craft Collection
Gem:  Queen & Co.

Groovy! I think I need to run again too, but I'm afraid half of me will be left behind dragging.

Wow fab Jen! That is a very apt sentiment!

Had to go and find out about your dogs and the chicken after your comment and ewww! At least my cat doesn't wreak murder! (well not yet anyway!)

Okay, now I'm wondering if you haven't blogged because you're still sore from running? (ha ha) Running in humidity is rough--you go, girl! Love the card, especially the balance of colors. The pink "olives" are super cute!!
