green & yellow circles

I love these bright colors ..... and never get tired of them! Thanks to Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger challenge this week - Scene in Tangerine (photo inspiration below) - I get to play and create with these colors in mind.

With the objective of creating a simple card and using these three colors, yellow, tangerine and green:
* I cut out uneven circles from felt in these three colors in different sizes (though I must admit that my so-called tangerine felt was a shade too red)
* the felt circles were layered and affixed with a flower brad each, and glitter glue spread on the edge of the top circle
* edge of the background paper was punched using a Martha Stewart border punch, and the paper was then colored using Ranger Distress inks
* finally the circles were affixed to the colored card before going onto the white cardstock
* sentiment comes from Paper Smooches - Pretty Phrases stamp set

And I just discovered that this card design is perfect for the latest Muse Challenge #24 - inspired by this card from Laurie Willison
and so... my submission is in!


  1. Great card - I love bright bold colours too!

  2. Love your 'zingy' take on this week's Muse! Thanks so much for playing along!

  3. This card really POPS! I don't know if it was your intent, but the circles remind me of citrus fruit ... perfect for a summer card.

  4. Hey Catherine! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
