bold, bright & happy

Hope you had a great weekend.  Maybe today's bright and bold card will liven up your Monday!  This card is for CAS-ual Friday #11 Create a Clean And Simple project using a sweet or a treat.  I hope this is clean and simple enough!  I am using one of the bonus colour combinations from Summer Card Camp Week 3.  The layout was inspired by this card from my fab friend Cheiron (which I am lucky enough to have on my mantle).  I made this card on Saturday which happened to be my birthday... my hubby said to me "Isn't that sad, you had to make yourself a birthday card".  Hee, hee... no worries though, I did receive several, including some lovely hand made ones from my crafty friends.

This is my last "fresh" post for a while as I am headed off to work again.  See above...
I have several scheduled posts over the next few weeks so be sure to check back!
Have an amazing summer and thanks for stopping by.
