a BRIGHT color challenge

Wow, these were bright colors! But so fun and cheery! I pulled out one of my oldest SU sets for this card......Buds n' Blossoms. So many other SU sets have gone to other homes.....but for some reason, I just have never been able to part with this set. Call me crazy!Well, here is the card I made for this challenge......I have a few more ideas in my head for cards using these colors, we'll just have to see if I can get around to making them. But I at least wanted to get one card posted and submitted to play in this challenge!
Actually, after I wrote this post last night, I came back down and made another card as well! Here it is, it is a 4 1/4 square card.I just have to say a big "THANK YOU" to all you gals who stop by my blog from SPCC. You all are so kind and leave such uplifting and wonderful comments about my cards....your words really make me smile, inside and out, so thank you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
