Funky colors? hehe

Okay, okay...so I admit. I made a card that photographed DAY-GLO. Ha! I dunno how but it does not look this bright in person. LOL!

Anyway, this is for two challenges in ONE! The first is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #19. What a cute sketch it is! I had tons of fun with this sketch. Firstly, because it is a tall card..or rather a long card. It fits in a standard business sized envelope. Now, y'all...that would be a lot of pattern to look at if I made this card from patterned paper. In fact, I'd venture to say that it would be a hot mess if I did. hehe So I tried to keep it simple but fun by using no patterned paper but fun (and apparently extra-super-bright papers.) hehe!

The second challenge for this card was on the Hanna Stamps Friday challenge which was to use circles! Ooh! I do love me some circles, y'all! I think I pretty well covered my bases with the circles, don't you? I cuttlebugged with the Swiss Dots, then Riley was cut out using my nestabilities circles and matted with a scalloped circle. Then I used my corner rounder punch to make a scalloped mat for the cuttlebugged piece and punched with my Crop-a-dile the little circles and then doodled some circles around that. The sentiment is from a dollar stamp and was cut out with my nestabilities and stuck onto the ribbon with a black (circular) brad. LOL!

Some people see stars? I'm seein' circles!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

This is so cute! This actually works for the color challenge of the Jacksonbelle Embellishment Design Team last Tuesday (orange, green and brown (or black) and you could use other colors)! Great job coloring. Thanks for visiting my blog!
