Bright, Bright & More Bright

Happy Friday to all, especially those of you who are looking forward to the next two days off work.  My card today is based on the Mojo Monday Challenge #236.  I didn't add a sentiment because it can be used for a number of different occasions so it will be on hand for when I need it.  I really liked this challenge because it was perfect for using lots of designer paper.

I started with Daffodil Delight card stock for the base.  I cut 
different strips of the Summer 
Smooches designer paper and added them to a piece of Island Indigo card stockDaffodil Delight ribbon was tied around the card and an Island Indigo brad was attached to fit over the knot.  This layer was then attached to the card front.  The image from the Bright Blossoms stamp set was inked up with Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight markers and stamped on Whisper White card stock.  It was punched out with a circle punch.  I matted the image layer with a piece of Island Indigo card stock punched out with a scallop punch.  The dots were added with a gel pen.  I inked up just the vase again, stamped it on the white card stock and cut it out.  It was attached over the image with dimensionals.  I decided to add Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry brads over the flower in the vase.  Dimensionals were used to pop up this layer on the card.  There you have it - my colorful card to start off the weekend.  I hope you enjoyed the card today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a fun weekend; try to add a little creative time each day.
