Ooh La La - Time for Challenge #54

Hello again everyone,
Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge - be sure to visit the challenge blog to see if you were the lucky winner.
Well time marches on and it's time for another challenge at the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog.  This time our challenge is "BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL"  Now I'm sure no-one will have any problems with this challenge.  As usual you can interpret this however you like so long as we can see Bright and Cheerful on your creation.
So without further ado, here is the card I made for this challenge:
This time I have used the images from the Shoes in Bloom CD - I have to say that this is one of my personal favourites (although they are all nice!).  All the elements from this card have come from the Rhodedendron Golden folder and I think you will agree that they are fabulously bright and cheerful.
I used the toppers images, the A4 curl sheet, an A4 backing paper and the sentiment is from the Waterfall sheet.  I used the curl sheet as a pocket to put the sentiment into and attached a ribbon to be able to pull it out easily. 
The flowers I have sort of made myself!  I only had white flowers like these so using a stencil brush and two different colour ink pads (to match the colours in the image) I dabbed ink all over the flowers and then sealed them with hairspray so that the colour wouldn't rub off.  I am quite pleased with how they turned out actually - might use this trick again!  Finally I added a heart embellishment from MIC and there you have it.

I shall also enter this card into the challenges at:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Make a pocket on your card
Quixotic Challenge - Let Your Garden Grow - make your own flowers (hope these count!!)
