For those playing Blog Bingo, today's Call Space is…..Rue des Fleurs

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to a week of Spring Blog Hopping! A group of us demos got together for a fun week of sharing our spring inspired creations. We hope you enjoy the hop and check back daily for a fresh dose of springtime inspiration!

Above is a bunch of Gerber Daisy Easel Cards πŸ™‚ The daisy's color pallet are from the Brights Color Collection (p. 177 in the catalog). Colors used are Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, and Tempting Turquoise.

The color collections are designed to work together in tones and color intensity. Yesterday's post talked about the Subtles Color Collection and today's features the Brights! I love working with the different color collections… Stampin' UP! makes it so easy for  us!
