Time for a Splash...of Color!


It's one of my favorite week's in
It's 'Color Splash' Week!


If you are not familiar with 'Color Splash'
it's a pretty simple concept.
Anything black and white with just a
'hint'
of color..and this week's color is....
green.


We are so happy to have


as this week's sponsor in The Cafe.
They not only provided our design team
with these fabulous stamps to create this
week's inspiration projects, but they
are also giving you the opportunity to win
the very same stamps that we used!


There are seven layers on top of this card base.

I used the 'Damask Butterfly' stamp to create the layered
background between the 'art deco' green border,
in which I used Martha Stewart's punch.
Spellbinders Large Labels dies were used to create the
frames for the 'Inspire Butterfly Collage' stamp.
A little patience and a good pair of tiny scissors
really goes a long way on this project.

Make sure you pop over to
The Play Date Cafe and see what the rest of our
fabulous design team have created to inspire you.
Then....get out your black, white and greens
and get creatin'!

Julie,
I absolutely LOVE this card! The fact that green is my favorite color has nothing to do with it - I love the details, the HUGE butterfly, the writing, the ageing, the softness of the colors. Excellent!

Lovely Julie! Wonderful added layers of the butterfly, the Damask butterfly makes a wonderful accent strip.
