Cure for a Rainy Day

Pin It It's raining today, so I need a little color in my life!  And when I need a little color pick-me-up, I very often almost always reach for this Hero Arts "Poppy Background" stamp.  It's so fun to color with my copics and very, very versatile (I love to play with it with different color combos...).

***(as a sidenote, I've never thought of myself as an "orange" kind of girl, but in looking around my house, I notice that warm and sunny color has somehow weasled its way into my heart (and decor)...  hmmm...)***

Pretty simple, but packs quite a punch!  (I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but I applied Glossy Accents to the two focal flowers just to give them a little pop!)

Anywho, this card has cheered me considerably, so I thought I'd share! ;-)  Thanks for visiting; here's hoping it's a sunny day where you are!
