My Time to Create COLOR Challenge!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

It's shaping up to be a busy one here, but filled with family, fun, and a parade and memorial day ceremony...so it's bound to be good! What are YOUR plans for the weekend? Parties, parades, gardening?? All the while - don't forget to think of those who died fighting for your right to do all those wonderful things...My friend Josh is a member of The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps (the President's fife and drum corps) and he posted that he was honored to spend the day yesterday visiting and decorating the graves in Arlington National Cemetary. I don't know if I've ever been more proud to call him my friend.

Ok - I know you aren't here to read about my thoughts on Memorial day...I will get on to business. Lauren has given us a SUPER fun color combo to play with this week...here it is:











Is that dress not the SWEETEST?? I have to ask Lauren where she found it, because I adore it, and would love to see one (if not both) of my girls in one!

I received my Papertrey goodies the other day, and figured I'd make my project with some of my new finds :).

I chose the colors, Raspberry Fizz, Melon Berry, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, and Aqua Mist all from PTI.

















I started out with a white card base, and stamped the large flourish from the new Papertrey Ink stamp set called, Fancy Flourishes in Brilliance Graphite Black ink. I picked out 5 different star designs to use, and stamped one on each of the colors of CS, and punched them out with Stampin' Up!'s Large Star Punch. I arranged them on my card front, and adhered them with dimensionals.

I then went back and stamped the little star image from the Star Prints set, around the flourish. I think this would be cool for a tween girl's birthday, don't you?

The rest of the Design team was awfully busy too - be sure to stop by and show them some love!! Here's a peek at what they've been up to...










Hope you get to play along -- don't forget to use Keyword MTCC02 when uploading, and be sure to link using the Mr. Linky widget on Lauren's post!

Tracey - This is so wonderful! I just love it. It screams fun! And I was thinking to myself that I really didn't need this set. Silly me.
I'm really going to try and do her challenge this weekend too. You did a great job with it.
Hugs and Love,
Renee

I love this card. the colours really pop, and I can see this being a great birthday card, or just a "pick me up" card for a young teen.
