Keeshs Colour Challenge


I needed a 3 year old birthday card today and I also was surfing Keesh's blog with her new colour challenge and decided to set myself a challenge of combining the both. Here is the finished product. The colours are Blue Bayou, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla. Yes it is very vanilla although it looks white. I may have adjusted it a little to hard in my photo editing software. I used the little car out of the By Land stamp set and stamped it on Ginger Blossom DS Paper and cut it out. This stamp set is a full image not an outline so I just run my chocolate chip marker around the outside lines before I stamped it, which also gives the car a little bit of a vintage look. I also sponged around the 3 star in choc chip to tie it in. I then had a little play with my cuttlebug embossing folders. I also stamped the a wish for you star in blue bayou. This stamp is in the stars stamp set in the Summer Mini Catty. Hope you like it and are having a great nite!

This is too cute! I love the embossing - but then I'm a Cuttlebug nut! Also think you've done a great job with the challenge. I've found this combo uninspiring and so is the card I've done - have yet to decide if I'll enter it! But yours in a winner!
