PSA: Sunglasses Needed

I guess I should know better than to ask a "tweenager" what they think of a card I am creating! LOL

I made this card for the 2nd b-day party this weekend; the little girl loves orange...so, that's my Public Service Announcement. Get your sunglasses out, we've got some bright colors going on here! Sorry, this picture makes the card stock look white; but it's actually SU! Very Vanilla.

I once again used the Crystal Effects on each of the flowers (don't forget, you can click on an image to get a better view). The base card is by Memory Box (I purchased several different colors from Ellen Hutson - love that you can try a variety of colors!. This particular one is Cranberry; the great thing is the front is this deep, rich color; but the inside is pure white. So nice for stamping!

I then layered the base card with SU! Pumpkin Pie, then SU! Very Vanilla. The DP is by My Mind's Eye, Day Dream, I'm really loving their card stock right now! I used Taylored Expressions cupcake challenge #45 for the layout. Love it!

The cupcake is brand new for me from Verve Visual called Cupcake Affair, SO many options! I colored the cupcake wrapper and flowers to match the colors of the DP. I used a nestie oval and nestie scalloped oval for the cupcake image. The sentiment "hey there cupcake" is by Stampendous; the great thing is these are clear stamps, so I was able to make them curve on my acrylic block to match the oval.

I also participated in the "Ways To Use It Challenge" on SCS (WT195) which was to decorate your envelope. I ALWAYS decorate my envelopes; but seldom take a picture of them; but this time I did. Nothing fancy, just added a strip of SU! Pumpkin Pie and My Mind's Eye DP.

The 3 floral brads were ones I had on hand (oh, I may have mentioned I have quite a few things on hand? LOL); they matched perfectly.

Thanks for popping in; you can remove your sunglasses now! Hugs, ~M.
