A Bright Hello!

I am still here.....I just had a busy weekend with the family, which has kept me away. We went to the Howell Balloon Festival on Friday, and I forgot my camera. I took some pictures with my phone, but I'm not sure how to download them onto the computer. Perhaps I need special software. I do have a USB cable, so maybe I should just play around with it a bit.

This is a card I made with some bright colors that I don't use very often. It has been quite cloudy around here lately, (with only peeks of sunshine) so I thought some brighter colors might be nice. The big floral bird is from "Greatest of Friends", and the sentiment is from "Flirty Flowers"...both sets are from Unity Stamp Company. I used my markers to color in the different areas on the bird in different colors (huff & stamp). The Pixie Pink flowers were stamped twice, trimmed out, and popped on dimensionals. I used the Threading Water punch once again for the edging, and the tag was made with my Ribbon Tags Trio. The seeds on the "ground" are A Muse Twinkle Stickers.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Love the design, especially the ribbon treatment on both sides of the sentiment and the black scallop edge. Pretty!!

Sorry, can't offer any advice on working with camera phones, but it sounds like you had a great time. :)
