Happy Thoughts of You

Howdy! Are you ready for a pop of color?? I've created a fun "just because" card with touches of bright red to bring a smile to someone's face. These bright colors just scream "summer" to me. And it's most definitely summer here now with our daily temperatures in the high 90's already. It won't be long before we're seeing the usual 100+ degrees that we always get, so I better enjoy this while I can, huh? LOL!

I pulled out the Summer Fresh 6x6 paper pad (Simple Stories) and cut two of the papers down to fit on a blue card base. I die cut some red cardstock with the gorgeous new Lady Kate Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and adhered it between the two patterned papers. Next, I wrapped some red twill ribbon around the card and tied it in a knot.

At the bottom of the Summer Fresh paper pad are some fun frames and journaling blocks, so I cut one of them out and stamped this happy sentiment from the Anytime Sentiments stamp set (Impression Obsession) with red ink. I used some Joy Foam Pads (small) to adhere this sentiment over the ribbon.

Lastly, I pulled out the new Daisy Strip die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and cut some yellow cardstock. I layered three of the daisy flowers together and added a red button to the center. I glued this down to the lower left corner of my sentiment.
