A Little Too Busy

I'm not sure if this is just not a "Lynn card" or if, with all those pink flowers, it got a little too busy....and maybe a little too artsy fartsy.      Seems like a bit too much to me - but hey, surprise - it doesn't have a critter on it!  Shock, I know!

It really isn't the type of card I usually do but I saw the stamp from Simon Says Stamp, fell in love, bought it, and then pretty much came to a screeching halt on what to do with it.  I think next time there won't be all that coloring business going on.  I used the Zigs to color the flowers - and that's not something I usually do either.  The "You" die and sentiment are also from Simon.  I cut the You in white and layered it several times and then attempted to create a shadow having the bottom layer in black.

Thanks for stopping by............

Absolutely gorgeous, Lynn! Those flowers are beautiful and your colouring is too! I occasionally surprise myself with a non-critter card too.

I did a double take on my side bar when I saw no critter. It is really pretty, Lynn! It reminds me of when my Azalea bushes pop open. Just lovely!

Love, love, LOVE the bright flowers and the layers of black and white on the sentiment, Lynn! You may not feel like it's your kind of card but it's fantastic, my friend. We all need a little jaunt off the trodden path now and then. :-D

It's not too busy, and definitely gorgeous! You should do more of this type too! The shadow on the sentiment looks perfectly done (mine always look like I just didn't get aligned properly!) and your Zig coloring is wonderful. Hope you will use this background again in future, as it's so pretty. TFS & Hugs

Absolutely gorgeous background design Lynn and the lettering is just perfect.

I think you should do more cards like this Lynn! I think it is fabulous! I love how beautiful those flowers are and I love that you colored them with your Zigs. You definitely achieved the shadow look by layering the black on the bottom of the "you". I love it! I love everything about this card! Hugs, Brenda
