Make It Colorful

Hello friends!
First of all, thank you for your wonderful and positive response on our summer challenge. The entries keep pouring in daily and I am overwhelmed by your enthusiasm! 

A quick post today....I mainly want to highlight the beauty of pattern paper. This challenge is "All about Colors".  But that doesn't mean you have to stop using your stash of design paper. My example today shows just that.

Sometimes the easiest design may not be obvious, but it is right in front of you. In this case, I made the simple die cut on white card stock, I took another look and thought:" why not cutting it in half and see what happens....".

I also took the advantage of the bright Bo Bunny Believe pattern paper. The only "fancy" stamping was the multi-colored sentiment. I did it with MISTI, of course.

I hope this card inspires you to check out your design paper and use them as colorfully as you possibly can. You will be amazed what you come up with!

I would appreciate it that you use the product links and side banner in this blog to make your online purchase. This will greatly help out in funding the challenge prize as we currently do not have any official sponsors.
Simon Says Stamp has a GREAT sale on discontinued items (see here
The July monthly kit s super popular and do sell out quickly.
The new release "Among The Stars" is worth checking out, too.

Due to the high number of entries, I may not comment on every single one. But please know that your entry will be viewed and evaluated. Please keep them coming. Thanks for stopping by!
