Hello lovelies!
Wow, the month's are flying by. The 1st of May already, which hopefully means lots of nice sunshine and lots of lovely bright colours around too!
It is also time for the VISIBLE IMAGE MAY CHALLENGE too which is a really lovely theme ...
'Brighten Your Day'...
I loved working to this theme. I always love bright colour's they make me feel happy and cheery seeing all the bright colour's around. I just had to use my favourite colour for this theme..and of course that means 'PINK'.
Before I show you my card don't forget you could be in for a chance of winning £10 to spend on VISIBLE IMAGE STAMPS if you are randomly selected as the winner of the challenge. Also I would like to remind you all that you MUST USE an actual stamp and NOT a digital stamp!

Visible Image Blog Badge, Blinkie
I have made a card to 'Brighten Your Day'...
The VISIBLE IMAGE STAMPS I have used to make my card are...
You can buy these stamps over at the VISIBLE IMAGE website or to be taken  directly to the stamps I have used click on the link's above!
The other materials you need to make this card are...
A4 White textured cardstock to make your A5 card blank ~ Floral paper ~ Pink Card ~ White Card to stamp on ~ Distress Ink Fired Brick ~ Memento Ink Tuxedo Black ~ Spectrum Noirs in shades: BP3, BP5, BP7, PP6, GB6, GB7, FS2, FS6, CG3 ~ Double-sided tape ~  3d foam pads ~ Corner Rounder ~ Silicon Glue ~ Decorative Corner Punch ~ Self-adhesive Pearls & Gems ~ Flower's & Ribbon Bows.
To make...
~ Score your A4 textured card stock in half to create your A5 card blank.
~ Cut a panel of floral paper and stick to the centre of the card as shown using double sided tape.
~ Trim a piece of pink card so it overlaps the floral paper.
~ Colour a panel of white card using the pink Spectrum Noir pens listed above and then using the Fired Brick Distress Ink stamp the ZEBRA BACKGROUND . Attach this over the pink card, leaving a narrow border.
~ Stamp KATIE onto white card using the Tuxedo Black ink and colour with your pens. I wanted to do something slightly different, so instead of colouring the outline with the 'usual' grey I chose to do it in green for a change. Trim and then use your decorative punch on the corners, fix to a panel of pink card and then round the corners of this. Use foam pads to attach to the Zebra background.
~ Stamp the 'Get Well Soon' from one of the MORE THAN WORDS collections onto a piece of the pink Zebra background and attach with foam pads.
~ To finish, add your flowers, ribbon bows, pearls and gems as shown.
I love the colours of this card, very bright and cheery. It is a perfect card if someone is feeling under the weather, it would really 'Brighten Your Day'.
