Fun-ly Friday

I'm actually excited to go in and get my work day over with!  When I get home, my loves will be waiting and the weather man says we may be snowed in this weekend!  Ahhh - time to play with paper!
Today is Fun on Friday at Christian Paper Crafts and I can't wait to show you what I made.  You see, if you've ever visited my blog, you know 1) I almost always have a brown or kraft card base, 2) bright colors are WAY outside of my comfort zone!  But look below:
(Cardstock: PaperTreyInk; Designer Paper: Basic Grey; Stamps: PaperTreyInk - Love Song, PaperTreyInk - Background Basics-Music; Misc: buttons, cuttlebug, lace trim)

What's even wilder is that I am actually tickled with it!  A real oddity for me and my creations!  Along with the Fun on Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts, this card also falls under the Color Dare challenge for this week, Fab n Funky's challenge, and the wonderful sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
I hope your weekend is as lovely as you are!

God Bless You,
