Challenge with Bouquet Bunch

Hey, it's Monday already! How did that happen? I know I'm a bit late (again!) for the Stamping 411 Saturday Challenge, but at least I'm working on it! As usual, the ladies came up with a great sketch with nice, clean lines. And that's just what I like. So here we go...
After several rainy, overcast days, the weather today was gorgeous and sunshiney! It made me happy to be alive and I just had to spend some time outside! So when I finally settled down to stamp something for the challenge, I think I still had a residue of sunbeams in my eyes, so the card came out a bit bright and sunny looking. Take a couple of oranges and throw in some yellow, and you really get bright! But that just makes it 'really cheerful' in my book!!
Stamps: Bouquet Bunch and Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White cardstock with So Saffron Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Black Gingham Ribbon, Sponge Quarter, and Dimensionals
Don't you think this card would cheer up anybody when they received it in the mail? Especially if they were dealing with one of those pesky 'milestone' birthdays. You always need just a bit more cheeriness when you realized you've somehow gotten another year older, don'cha think???
Have a super week, and make sure you find time to get a bit of stamping done. It's good for the spirit!! Hugs,
