Fun and colorful


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Before I start this post, I would love to thank my brother for taking photos of my cards so they could look a bit more professional (unlike some of my previous ones!)

I made two cards and am loving the colors on both of them! I really enjoyed making them, thanks to the wonderful, inspirational pictures:) 

The first card was inspired by this photo for the "picture perfect" challenge over at Paper Smooches:

This absolutely reminded me of the color wheel. So I thought along those lines and created a ring with various colored washi tape. I think the colors look great when put together: 

And on when layered onto a piece of cardstock, even better! I am loving this card! 

I am entering this card into the Paper Smooches challenge as well as the Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes. 

I decided to join the Avery Elle challenge since I finally own an Avery Elle stamp set (woo hoo!) Here's the picture used as inspiration: 

This looks like a perfect place to swim in! How gorgeous are the colors? I decided to use the colors to create the base of my card, along with some embossing. I then decided to add the sentiment "you rock" since there was a boat in the picture. And of course, the rope made me think of twine:) 

Here's my card: 

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says "Anything Goes" Challenge and into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. Oh, and also into the CAS on Sunday challenge.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.
