You Make My Life Brighter

Hi!

There is a new challenge at Creative Paper Trade that I am just getting in at the last minute.  My life has been full of busy, but I fell in love with these colors, so I am so happy that I am able to enter.  I received some happy mail today from Paper Smooches from the Sparks Challenge I won last week, so I waltzed ran to my crafty space to sit down and create finally with these beautifully delightful colors. 

Here is what I have to share tonight. I know the photographs are going to be dark since it was late afternoon when they were snapped. 
I had some fun papers in my scrap pile. I believe they may be all from the same company, but I can't be for certain. I worked with papers that I felt coordinated well together as well worked for the color challenge. I added a thin green trim of ric rac to the bottom.  A sentiment from Paper Smooches Giddy Bugs was added to the lower right in Tuxedo Black ink. I just love the fun font.  
A length of seam binding was wrapped around the upper portion of the card front and tied in a fussy bow and tied off using a button, twine and a tag stamped with a darling heart from the Giddy Bug set. The star of the show is the cute Giddy Bug herself! :-))) She has been colored in with pink copics and her cute friend the butterfly has been embellished with a yellow button and twine. 

As mentioned, I was inspired by The Creative Paper Trade. I was waiting at the Gates to play in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge. I was anxiously waiting for the gates to open.
I hope you have a fantastic and wonderful rest of the weekend.
