Colour My Life

I need more colour in my life.
After living in this house for almost 2 years, it's time to attack the 'antique cream' walls.
I have some jazzy wall-paper in mind for the porch, that is making Mr Kiss hyperventilate!!
Watch this space...

Thinking of colour has filtered through to my craft room and my latest card...
(sorry about the poor photos, they were taken in a rush, at the kitchen table on my iphone)

The inspiration photo at Fusion card is a gorgeous bouquet of summer flowers (see below).
Now, as you know, I am not great when it comes to flowers so,
I tried to replicate the colours from the bouquet, in my own way.

I started by die cutting lots of speech bubbles, and arranging them onto my card panel.
Any pieces that hung over the edge were trimmed off.
The speech bubbles were attached with foam tape after a few of them were stamped with sentiments, and a couple had sequins added.
