the paper players - color challenge time!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope each of you have a blessed day with your family and friends!

I am having such a fun time as guest designer for The Paper Players. I love knowing that I will be in my craft room at least once a week working on a little something fun for each weekly challenge. This week it's a color challenge by the super talented LeAnne Pugliese.


At first I thought I was going to make a boy card with these colors, but then I really wanted to pull out my new Mixed Bunch stamp set (which I swore I didn't need, but after seeing all of the great ideas others have created with this stamp set... it pushed me over the edge and I broke down and bought it!)

I went with clean lines with this card, but I just love how striking those big flowers are...especially in this color. So bold and bright!


Stamp Set: Mixed Bunch, Friendly Phrases
Paper:
Whisper White, Pool Party, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery DSP (polka dots)
Ink: Not Quite Navy, markers - Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 Way Glue, In-Color Brads (Pool Party)

Tools: Blossom Flower punch

Join the rest of the Paper Players design team and grab Pool Party, Certainly Celery, and Not Quite Navy (or any colors similar) and head on over to link up your creation and join in the fun! The designers have some great inspiration awaiting you!

This IS fabulous---very simple layout but those flowers really pack a punch! I love the brads too, and that sentiment is from one of my favorite sets! Thanks for bringing my colors to their best bold beauty!
