Here is another card I made using bright spring colors. I love the gold stripe paper I chose for the background.
The Calypso Coral cardstock frames the gold paper and ties all the colors together. I stamped some flower images and colored them with markers, blending some shades together.
I used some really sharp scissors to cut out the flowers. I cut a label and punched a hole in each end. I stamped a timeless sentiment in the middle.
I used some green twine to emphasize the green leaves and threaded it through both ends of the label, taping it to the back of the gold paper. I think this is an elegant card.
