Today I am showing you a bright and silly birthday card that I created for my 3GirlJam post (go visit me over there and leave me some lovin'!)
Anyway, I wanted to create a cheerful and bright card and I loved this sentiment from the Stampin Up! set, Bombs Away. I'm not sure how I feel about the new polymer stamps from SU, but I certainly did love this set. This would be a good card for one of my friends at work that just HATES to tell anyone her age.
The doily, punch used to make the delicate butterfly, and cute little pearls are also from SU. I made the flower with 3GirlJam Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon, from the Hot & Cold Bundle. Of course, this time of year, I'm choosing the "Hot", because I'm ready for more summer fun! The center of the flower is a button from Pinque Peacock from their new May release. Isn't it just delicate and wonderful?
While I was in Spain, I found myself inspired by all the bright and cheerful colors that dotted the landscape.

No matter where, we all want a little color to brighten our days.
Anyway, hope you like my card today and it inspires you to make something bright and beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to be torturing myself with a half marathon on Saturday morning! But today, well, I'm going to
