Beautiful Day!

I have never been a "color-er", but this set makes it so easy!  And, sitting down to color is soooo relaxing!  And, another favorite of late -- cardstock vellum!!  Doesn't it add just the right touch on this card?  (touch of what?  not really sure, but....)

Another card using the Bouquet Blooms!  It just screams for bright colors, don't you think?

Bouquet blooms2

Check out that ribbon!!  I colored it myself!  It comes in very vanilla or whisper white, but just use a sponge dauber and an ink pad -- it can be any color you want!  Just a hint -- let it dry before you try to use it on a project!  See the tiny smudge on the left side??  I need some patience! haha!!

Here are the other supplies I used:
