Bright and Bold

Hello Readers,

For today I will be playing along with Addicted to CAS, Seize the Birthday, and Virginia's View Challenge

And a big shout out to Becca Cruger from The Damsel of Distress on her 30th birthday! From one Leo to another I wish you a very happy birthday!  She is celebrating with a card linkup party and thought I would join in the fun!

As the title suggests this card is bright, bold, and beautiful. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I really like the black splatters around all this color.
The word 'birthday' was heat embossed in white and then resisted
with the addition of watercolor.
Bright and cheery Happy Birthday.
Many friends and family have Summer birthdays.
So better to be prepared than sorry.
I used the faux bleaching technique again.
This time in the word 'Happy'.
 Challenges Entered:
Addicted to CAS: Challenge #92- Stripes
Virginia's View Challenge: #22- Summer Challenge
Seize the Birthday: Bold and Bright
Becca's Birthday Linkup Card Party

Celebrating Becca's 30th!
Bright and cheery is a good feeling, isn't it? I believe this card creates a sense of happiness. Why? Well the color of course and all the white space surrounding it makes the color shine even more brightly. I know exactly who I am going to give this to (wink, wink). This someone shines with brightness and cheer. This card could not be more perfect.

Thank you so much for stopping by today my corner of the internet. I really do appreciate it.. So until next time take care and happy, cheerful crafting to you all.

All the best,
