Happy Color

I want to share a wonderful blog that I found At Home with Kim Vallee. I'm so inspired by Kim, a designer, lifestyle and entertaining expert and an all around sharer of all things fun and funky! Her blog is full of neat ideas, neat products and great finds.While browsing, I came across this entry on filling your walls with happy colors.

Those are definitely happy colors. I love the green and I wish I had the gumption to paint my walls those beautiful colors, but Plain Beige Jane that I am, my walls are shades of beige. Not on cards though...there I can be brave and explore all kinds of colors. I love the way the green and black came together in this card. This was based on Kazan's Sketch for the design team application on 2 Sketches 4You

The patterned paper is from American Crafts, Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder, flower from Bazzill, 3 D sticker flower from Sandylion, ribbon from Offray. I folded the ribbon and tacked it down with adhesive as I went across the card.

I used to be a more of a plain beige Jane on my cards too, but bolder colors have started to creep into my designs and I gotta say, they're making me happy!

Pop on over to 2 Sketches 4 You to check out the new spring design team. I know you'll find lots of Happy Color there!!
