Bright and Dandy


Hi friends! We're travelling right now so this is a scheduled post. Apparently a lot of you did not like my vintage/grungy card yesterday...or maybe you all are just plain busy! Who isn't, right? *grin*

Today's card was meant to be uplifting and happy for its recipient. I'm hoping to cheer her up while thanking her...think it will work? Rarely do I add buttons without any floss, thread or twine in them but I thought it worked here. I know the color scheme is a bit daunting, but it doesn't actually clash or anything, so I kind of like it. Hawaiian Shores, Plum Pudding, Orange Zest and New Leaf.  I LOVE those giant dots!

All stamps are Practicing Creativity Designs (For the love of Dots and You're Dandy). All other supplies are PTI.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow!
Have a good one,

Wow, what an outstanding card Dana! First of all I love the bold color combo. It's not something I would think to do, but it works so well. I'll have to push my boundaries in this area. Secondly, I love the layout and design. The rounded corners, scallops and big polka dots just balance so well. Love everything about this.

OKay I am a total lover of orange / purple ....... the green is like the grass under those dandy dandelions and for me HS has become a neutral so it totally works for me!!! Have fun on your road trip .......... chat soon!!!

Amy said...

I think your colour combo is fab Dana! Very bright and cheery and I'm sure the recipient will think so too!

I felt the same way yesterday! No comments either and I thought did I make a bad card? I loved your grunge card! I think we all need to step out and do something different than we normally do. This card is fantastic and she would be crazy not to love it!

I liked your card from yesterday! Outside of MY comfort level, but really cool. Today's card is cute. I love the colors together..they work well and I love those dots, also! I might have to head back to the PCD site and buy ANOTHER set because of you!!!

Margaret C said...

ummm ....no, yesterday's card was not one of my favourites, but if it gladdened your heart, who am I to knock it ????!! However, I LOVE the boldness of today's - yes it WOULD cheer me up if I recieved it - and yes, I DO plan to nick your colour combo !!!

Welcome back Jam said...

Dana,
I really like this bright color combo. I'm trying to use some brighter colors lately. Where in upstate NY are you from? I'm in the Albany area, but orignally from the Saranac Lake area. Very upstate!
