Two cards- several challenges


When my son saw this inspiration picture from the very first colour me challenge he exclaimed - "you have to play in this challenge" - and guess what - he was right!


   
I took a very literal approach here, since that picture is just perfect! Here is my card:


Since it also kind of fits the sketch from the Friday Mashup I'm linking it there as well.


Materials:
 Die and sentiment by Avery Elle, 
stamp: Close to my Heart One Way Borders Flair
Paper Candi buttons

I am linking this card with the Snippets Playground - used several Snippets here

Here is the inspiration picture for this weeks Color Throwdown






I finally stocked up on my Neat and Tangles stamp supply and now own several sets! Yeahh, I finally can play better in the Neat and Tangled challenge, called Little Tangles.

The two stamp sets I used are Everyday Labels and Party Dots. I also used Washi tape, stuck it onto white card stock, since I did not want it to be transparent and punched a 2"circle. The sentiment is heat embossed. 


I am also linking this card with Creative FridayAlles Neu/something new
