Bold, Bright and Love Ya to Pieces

Thanks to the snow and cold weather yesterday, dear hubby and I lounged at home sweet home the entire day. Instead of running errands outside, I truly enjoyed designing cards for various card blog challenges including this one .....

THE PLAY DATE CAFE's color combination challenge is bold and bright blue and yellow, which normally I don't use often but I am quite pleased with what I came up with. On another "channel", CAS-ual FRIDAYS is hosting a clean and simple paper piecing technique which happens to be my favorite paper craft technique. 

First I stamped a couple of dragonfly on a white cardstock to sort of "frame" the card. Then I added gerbera flowers with sky blue ink. Using sunflower yellow ink,  I stamped and cut this gerbera flower and embellished the paper piece with dark royal blue gems .

There you go! Combining these 2 challenges together was fun, easy and I'm loving it!
