CR84FN50 Pink, Orange, Yellow or "POY"

It's a cloudy, gloomy day here today.  The kind of day where it threatens rain, but it never does.  Mother Nature at her teasing finest.  In spite of that, and having a code in my node, I decided to participate in the CR84FN challenge and make a card using these bright and cheerful colors:

I'm pretty sure this is my first time participating in a CR84FN challenge, which is exciting!  And it's Oh, Boy, POY!  It's like POW in the cartoons, only more ladylike.  I have made more cards using pink and orange in the last two days than I have in the last ten years!  Here's what I did this time:

Because of the daffodil, I had planned to make this a Happy Easter card, but then I spied the "live with zest" stamp and decided that seemed so perfect for this "citrus-y" card.  It does make your mouth water for a big, juicy, zesty orange, doesn't it?

Please enjoy ~ and thank you for stopping by! Special thanks to you if you took the time to leave me a comment or join!

I love everything about that card!! The embossed dots, the combination of colours - as you say, it's so bright and fresh. It pops out of the page at you. My favourite card this week :)
