Sunday, June 13, 2010


It has been another beautiful Sunday even though it's cooler than normal here right now. We were taken to the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant in Mira Mesa for a Champaign Brunch this morning for Father's Day. Our son will be out of town next week-end and he wanted to take his Dad out for Father's Day so we did it early. Oh so good food! We certainly appreciated and enjoyed it.

The following card was inspired by a color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week. I would never have chosen these colors on my own. I usually use more subdued colors, I never used many Bright Bolds. So this was a real challenge for me, but I really like my card and am sure I will be using more of the Bright colors this year. Thanks so much 'girls'.

I started with a Brillant Blue card and layered it with Green Galore. I then cut a piece of Summer Sun and punched it with the Scallop Border Trim Punch. Then I tied a strip of Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon around the two layers. Next I took my Bermuda Bay layer and ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I couldn't decide on what I wanted for a focal point on that and then remembered I had the Daisies #2 Bixz Die that I had not used yet. Oh My! I love it in Summer Sun. It is so fibrant in person. I then put a Rhinestone Brad from the Fire Circle group in the center. I just love is so gor-ge-ous!!!

Thanks for stoppin!

Have a Blessed night!

  1. WOW June...your card is FABULOUS!!! You did such a great balance of these bright colors. I'm with you about not using so many bright colors. The new brights line-up though is simply fabulous! Thanks for playing along on this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!
