Bright colours!

The other day I was inspired by seeing a fabulous card on Instagram made by Clare Messenger(@clarecraftsalot)
I had a little playtime!
I needed a card for my DIL and knew that this style would be perfect for her!
I CASEd (Copy And Share With Everybody) Clare's card in my own way!
The master board had to be bright so used a combination of paints and stencils, and I wanted to use JoFY's sunflower as that was what attracted me in the first place. Clare's card had a sophisticated black border and some subtly placed sequins! I went OTT with the stickles and chose my DIL's favourite colour as the border!
I decorated the envelope with more JoFY stamps. 

I forgot to take a photo of the whole master board so here is part of it….…and this is how I used up the leftover paint!
 I would like to enter Simon Says Monday Challenge to say Happy Birthday!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh wow, Chris. This card is beautiful and I simply love the masterboard. You also put your excess paint to good use, too. Very impressive, I might add!

Great card, Chris! I don't know what OTT means but I love the little sparklies in the sunflower's center (stickles?) and how you arranged them.

I got mail yesterday and love everything <3 <3 <3

Have a great weekend! Hugs, Eileen
