A happy card after rain!!

Good Morning!

I don't know about your area but we have been inundated with rain in the last 2 days!  We are blessed that there were no severe storms like in Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and many more areas and still more suffering with flooding and even more rain.  Our rain has ended this morning so hopefully the saying about April showers bringing May flowers will hold true!  I have a card for you today that is happy and bright.  It uses the spotlight-lighting technique.  Karin did this card at her April classes and I loved it so I just changed the colors because it was so pretty!

Here are the details on the card:
Paper: Real Red Card stock, Daffodil Delight Card stock, Whisper White Card stock
Ink: Real Red, Jet Black StazOn, Real Read, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers
Stamp(s): Pleasant Poppies
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Squares Collection Framelits,  Blender Pens, 1/4" Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals.

I haven't used my blender pens much as they make me a little nervous, but I am working on using them so I get comfortable with it and this card was perfect.  I outlined the poppies with the marker and then colored in the flowers with the blender pens and the ink pad for a softer color.  I stamped just a corner of the stamp on the inside and colored them too.  It really is pretty and a happy card with the bright colors!  I love the technique and I think I will be doing more with it!!  Thanks Karin, so pretty and fun!

Some other news, I was lucky enough to get to attend the new catalog launch party on Monday night.  I have to say I am loving the new catalog and can't wait to be able to order all the great new products that are coming our way!!  So much stuff, the wish I mean shopping list is very, very long!  

Well I am going to sign off and wish you all a wonderful weekend!!
