Echo Park - I ♥ it!

Any regular reader of my blog could quite easily have predicted my reaction to the release of Echo Park papers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They are bright and bold and colourful and as soon as I saw that Tracy at Dies to Die For had them in stock, I whacked my order in before anyone else could snaffle them! The ones I've used are 'Walk in the Park' but she also has the 'Life is Good' range there to tease you as well......!

I love how bold and zingy this card turned out! I'm also really happy with the flowers I made using an embossing punch thingy I picked up at The Range the other day. I embossed them a bit more and I'm quite pleased with the effect as I was able to use the same DP as the rest of the card. I do love a bit of 'matchy -matchy'!

I'm entering this card in to a couple of challenges - Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge (punches) and Simon Says Stamp (Sing it Baby). Now, I appreciate that you might be thinking, "What song has she incorporated into that?!" Well, I went for.... wait for it......
"Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free...
Nothin's worryin' me"

Happy Tuesday folks!
