I'll Have a 'Splash' of Lime...Please

I'll give you one guess when it comes to the challenge
I have to share with you just now !

Yep . . . it's 'Color Splash' time over at

This time around, we are going with a simple splash of
Lime Green

This week, our designers were given a beautiful selection of
sticker images from our sponsor, SRM Stickers.
I planned everything around the beautiful sentiment and
ornate border from 'Fancy Thinking of You' stickers by SRM.
I created the medallion using Spellbinder's Moroccan Accents
and Standard Circles dies.
I want to thank a whole bunch of girls over on Facebook for
coming to my rescue when I couldn't get the papers to release
cleanly from the die because of their lovely detailing.
If you're not sure how to either, then I pass on to you the idea
to place waxed paper between the die & paper or cardstock.
They release like b.u.t.t.a.h. ! ! !

The gorgeous gem flourish is from Want2Scrap and the perfect
seam binding is from

As I mentioned, we are really happy to have

with us as our sponsor and you will be absolutely
blown away by what are designers did with theirs !
Hope you'll play along with us this week.
