A Bright Thank You

As much as I love bright colours, sometimes I can get carried away with them, like I did on this card. On their own, each part looked fine, but once I had finished gluing everything together, I changed my mind about this card. I think the background paper is too busy and distracts from the main elements too much. I might see if I can dismantle it tomorrow and change that paper, but Mr Tombow is a very strong glue so I doubt I'll get anything off!

Anyhow...this card is for Inkspirational's Challenge #34 to use the card below to CASE. I basically took the layout of the card and the idea of the bird for mine. I combined it with the colour challenge CC440 from SCS this week, which is a fun, bright one!


And here it is... I ordered this set in my last SU order and completely forgot to order the matching punch - duh! Guess I need to make another order soon then :P
