A Little Color of Happy

Hi all,

I hope all is well where ever you are. I know some parts of the states had some snow fall, while other's have had terrible rain & winds. Well I think Spring has sprung. Here in North Texas it has been lovely, sun is shining and it's just gorgeous....Til you step outside and need a light jacket and the wind picks you up to carry you off. lol   So no matter where you are I hope you all are safe and warm.

I am up on the Crafty Card Gallery! 
Do you have any special "female" family members or friends you need a Birthday card for within the next few weeks or months?? Well the card I am sharing today is a card you can make using anything you have on hand. As long as you have a few sheets of patterned paper, punch, brads or color sprays.  

I made this easy card today using a square punch, corner punch and a border punch, and Recollections brads,a couple of DCWV paper stack and a A2 card (pre-embossed) from their card/envelope stack. I also used Prima Bloom Sprays. (All supplies listed below)

I used a sketch  from DCWV this month to make this card using a couple of their paper stacks. I have to say the sketch was definitely a challenge. lol   But what a fantastic look for a card once I was done.
DCWV has a monthly sketch both for layouts and cards.

The card sketch

Here is my Card -
I sprayed the outside of my card first with my Color Bloom Sprays, set aside to dry. 
I punched out 10 squares and used my corner punch on opposite side of the 
squares for the odd shape, and layered. 
I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Edge punch, wrapped pink twine around 4 times. 
Fussy cut the flower, the brown border flag with the
orange sentiment. Used 5 Recollections brads - 1 on flower & 4 on the
punched border. 

Papers - DCWV - Collage Art paper stack; the Celebration paper stack (Happy Birthday sentiment only);
Inks - Prima Color Bloom Sprays - Cotton Candy, Soft Teal; Iris
Accessories - Recollections brads- Fall; Martha Stewart - Daisy edge punch; Corner punch;pink twine from stash

and other challenges listed below  -
