Bold Brights!

Today's color challenge on SCS was to use some Bold Brights. . .the color family that I don't use very much of. The challenge called for Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore. I wanted to use my new ladybug stamp that I got in my birthday package from Jami. It's a Penny Black stamp, and I think it's so cute! Besides, I really need to work on using small images. They're easy when I do a little 3x3 card, but when I make a standard 4.25x5.5 card, I feel like the whole rest of the card is naked! I guess I just need to get over that! :) Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Lady Love, Penny Black, So Very, See You Around wheel; Paper- Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Shimmery White; Ink- Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Palette in Noir; Accessories- grosgrain ribbon, small oval punch, Making Memories brads, paper piercer, Aquapainter.

I love how you colored around your ladybugs. And your bg stamping keeps the rest of the card from being too "naked".
