You color my world!

Hey peeps!

After enjoying the company of my friend today, I was full of ideas and mojo to craft. So went through some challenge blogs and started to work on a project.

I like to experiment with stamps. And Moxie Fab World’s 75 Creative Cards Challenge – Make your own background paper was a perfect challenge to play along. So I pulled out Lovely Layers Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and looked for a colour combination to work with! I remembered the new ColourQ challenge #172. 

Using the colours from ColourQ challenge colours, I set out to stamp my background paper.

Here is my fully stamped background paper using the colours from ColourQ Challenge.

And here is my card I made using my background paper.

I went for a stationery look. So I used Fillable Frame diecut stamped with fillable frame stamp and senitment from Beautiful Butterflies. I layered it on a strip of gray cardstock and wrapped around the background paper.

I have also added rhinestones to the center of the stamped images for added interest.
I am pretty stoked with the outcome of this card. This is one card, I will keep and not giveaway this card.

Thanks for visiting!
Have a great evening!
