Something to Brighten Your Day

Yesterday I created a card inspired by the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.  I've long loved this blog!  But, it's my first time playing along with the Tuesday Trigger.
Here's the inspiration pic:
It really reminds me of the pyrex my mum had, and how it's always used to hold curry or our favourite Straits Chinese vege dish.  The colours of the stacked pyrex also reminded me of a tie-dyed top I once had.
Here's my card:
I coloured the PI girl's apron to mimic the tie-dyed top I had, and the rest of her clothes in shades of orange and red.  I also created the pattern paper with the birds and flowers, inspired by the bird & flower image on the white pyrex.  It's been awhile since I made anything this bright!  I kinda love it.

I hope this brightens your day!  Have a good one!
Cheers,

Kary,
I remember these mixing bowl sets. I still have mine, however mine is in yellow and orange. Boy is that dating me or what?? Love your take on this challenge. Love the reds and orange and how you tie dyed the little girls top. Too cute. What a fun card.
Hugs,
Marcie

Oeh, cute!! Love the happy colors here!! Such a lovely combination, very nice card!! Love the separate sentiments, that looks great!
Well, we are having weird weather here... I was in the zoo with friends and their little boy Saturday and it was okay in temperature, but grey and late in the afternoon rainy and yesterday as well, but today it will be 29 degrees Celcius and I see only blue skies and then tomorrow we're back to 15 degrees Celcius and grey... is that weird?!!! Hope you had a lovely weekend and wishing you a wonderful week!!!
Hugs, Wendy

P.S. I wouldn't mind at all to include you in the giveaway if you like the images to color! :-)
