I'm obviously a fan of bright colors and I've used some more for this card.

This card also was made for two challenges, once again!

First, I used the SUO Challenge#202-Patriotic, here.

What perfect colors to use for that than Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel?

Second, it's for the Global Design Project#143, here.
It's a theme: love it, live it, share it for the new 2018-2019 Catalog.

I chose to share the colors because I love them so much and I love to celebrate!

Eastern Beauty and Love What You Do are the stamp sets with some 2018-2020 In Color 6 by 6 DSP.

I colored the stamp from Love What You do with  Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel markers then sprayed some water on it and stamped.

Here's my recipe:

Papers: WW, 2018-2020 In Color 6 by 6 DSP
Inks: Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black
