Summer Colors!

Hi everyone!

Well I'm late! I've completely gotten my days messed up. Must because it's the first week that the kiddos are out of school. I know once I get in a 'Summer routine' it will be time for them to go back to school.

Here's a card I've done for Just Magnolia. Our theme is Summer Colors. I have to tell you These bright bold colors aren't in my comfort zone. My friend Ruby, inspired me with this card she made. I just love all of the colors. She's such an amazing crafter! Although I didn't get those bright colors down like I had hoped I'm really happy with the outcome of this card. I forget how much I really love orange. I have used this darling #231 Summer Flower Tilda from the one and only Magnolia-licious! Your one stop Maggie shop! The sentiment is from Little Darlings and it's created by me, so it's a must have! :)

I hope you will join us over a Just Magnolia, have a terrific weekend!

Paper - Basic Grey, SU, Copic Xpress
