Bright and Cheery

I just love this card, not really for what it looks like but because of why I made it, LOL. It seemed it had been forever since I made anything and one day I decided to make a card just to make a card.  It's for no particular person, no particular event...no reason at all!!   It felt good to play, for play sake, hee-hee. So without further ado, here's the first card I made in a very long time. (and yes it was before the Mother's Day flowers and card, I just kinda forgot to post it).
 Here's a closeup of a rose I colored to match.  In the past I would always make a mist of the color I wanted to spray the flower.  I saw on some blog (oops, I don't remember the blog right now, bad me!) to use the copics and color the tip of the flower and use the colorless blender to have the color fade down the rose...genius! 
 As you can see, the card is very dimensional!! Like I said, this was the first card I made in a very very long time and just played with several techniques :)
Bright? yes, for some reason I was wanting something very bright and cheery, mission accomplished LOL.  Don't look so closely at my coloring, I mean I wasn't good before but geesh, I felt like a kindergartener learning to color for the first time. I really need to practice....a lot more!!  Happy Sunday y'all!!

Hey Paula!! I am late as usual. I am so glad you got to play just for the sake of doing something fun. Your card is beautiful with wonderful colors. Your coloring of Tilda is truly wonderful and I love the way you have arranged your flowers. And that little butterfly on the right hand side - perfect!! Sorry I was a little late ...
