Color Me Happy!

We have been snowed in at our house all week and are going a little stir crazy! There's no school again today but our driveway is better now and we have been told the main roads are clear, so we are getting out of here! 😂 One of the local indoor water parks is having a snow day special so it is family day! I wanted to make a quick card before we took off for the day, and I came up with one that only took about 10 minutes!

When I'm in a hurry, or when I'm feeling uninspired, I look online for challenges to get me started. I found my layout at Fusion Card Challenge and my color combination at The Paper Players.

With those fantastic bright colors, I decided to use a simple white background. I had this extra Lemon Lime Twist leaf panel leftover from a My Paper Pumpkin kit, so I angled it and trimmed off the edges. Then I used my aqua painter to color my birdies, fussy cut them, and adhered them with Dimensionals. I added a sentiment and some embellishments and it was complete!

See how easy it can be to complete a cute card? Now we're off for a day of swimming and fun! ❤


  1. This is great! I really like the frame and the way it goes off at an angle while creating perches for the birds. The sequins are perfectly placed. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  2. What a fun take on the sketch! Tilted layers always make me smile! :) Thanks for playing along with us at Fusion. And P.S. I hope the snow has cleared by now!!
