Secret Garden meets Gingham Garden

Bright and Cheerful

When I make cards, especially during the summer, I love to use bright and cheerful colors!  This card is a perfect example.  Although when I first look at it, I find it "busy" - I really do love the colors and patterns!  Gingham Garden is one of my favorite DSP's in the Annual Catalog!  
I used the gingham print and the floral prints, matted them both and then thought I'd make two flowers to pop up.  I really which I made two of the flowers on the left outlined in white... but instead I made two different, both embossed, one in white and one in Melon Mambo.

I wouldn't call this card my favorite but that is the BEAUTY of card making.  Not everything you make will be your favorite but there are some people who will LOVE this card.  I keep every card I make because I know the receiver always loves a handmade card!

Come back tomorrow for my week of "new" stuff and a giveaway!  YAY!!!!
