Playing with Bright Colors

 When the weather is cold and gloomy outside, the best thing to do is stay inside and make a bright card....and this one is a bit brighter than I usually make. I hope it might brighten someone's day.  I have used one of my favorite Flourishes stamps "Zinnias" but it's hard to say which is my favorite as I have so many faves. I colored the stamp with bright Copics after stamping on white cardstock with black ink.  Added some side panels of pattern paper, punched strips along the bottom edge, and stamped the sentiment on layered circles with a touch of ribbons. Finished with a die cut butterfly with bright pink bling. Lot of bright pink, orange, yellow, and green used on this project.
