Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Celebrate a Sweet Birthday


Hello, Hope this post finds you well! Today starts the next challenge at The Paper Players. Sweet Claire, is our hostess today and she has a fun color combo for us for Color Week! There are loads of possibilities with this trio. Some of the Design Team members went the Christmas route, but I needed a birthday card at the time. My attempt at no lone coloring for my strawberries has a lot to be desired, but I should get partial credit for trying. LOL You can find the card details at the bottom.

Card Details: Background die-Sunny Studio, Sunflowers-Sizzix, Strawberries-Recollection stamp set from Michaels, Stitched rectangles-SU, Greeting from Jillibean Soup, Prisma Colored Pencils.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!
