A whole lot of wonderful!

We have a new challenge at CAS - Colours and Sketches and this week it's a colour challenge. A nice bright, cheerful colour challenge!
Aren't these lovely colours? I immediately thought of spring, tulips and happiness! I hope my card translates that...

I used the lovely Vivid Vases stamp, new in the Spring/Summer catalogue. I liked this stamp the first time I saw it. I coloured it very simply using my Stampin' Write Markers. 

Can you see the shine on the vases? I added some Crystal Effects as I thought it would give them some realism. The strip of Gingham Garden Washi gives the card I little 'zing' don't you think?

  8. The gingham border in the sunny yellow definitely says "Spring"! I like the punched border and the rounded corners, too. You did an awesome job with your Crystal Effects - I can't ever get it to look so smooth when I use it. Terrific job all around, Lizy! :)

  9. I love this, Lizy. So Spring-like and cheerful. The glossy vases look great and I love the pop of yellow gingham. Note to self...use yellow more often! Apologies for my lack of comments lately, I've been a rubbish blogger! Hopefully I can find more time from now on xx
