Being stuck in this winter blues, I find it only appropriate to brighten up the mood with a fun colorful card! I created this next card for my friend Sarah. She loves bright colors and having a tan! In the summer she travels to the beach every weekend to enjoy some fun in the sun with friends! 🙂 First, I found some really great patterned paper that was bright and happy! I embellished the front of the card with Birthday and a cake and backed them on stamped paper. I used a rubber lime stamp and some lime green ink. I layered it on some hot pink paper. Inside, I used a fun toadstool paper and added some more birthday embellishments. These colors and designs remind me of Lily Pulitzer (http://www.lillypulitzer.com/). There is a Lily store in Red Bank, NJ by my Aunt’s house that I just love to go in. It’s bright, cheerful and makes you want a margarita….on the rocks with salt! Talk about a cure to the winter blues. Now if I could only take a vacation to the Caribbean.
