A { Colorful } Challenge



It's quite a colorful day here at The Open Window
as we present a brand new challenge over at


This week, we are using the colors

Grass ... Rose Petal ... Hibiscus


I have been hanging on to a bunch of newer embellishments
from BasicGrey, including the 'Hey Girl' collection and I knew
this hanging banner would be perfect for these colors.

I grabbed some washi tape from Freckled Fawn & Recollections
to create a simple pattern on the base panel and brought
it all together with the sweet flower from Prima.


I find myself apologizing with nearly every post
for the poor lighting in my photos.  Yes, I have a light tent.
The problem is my creative space is getting smaller by the day
and I've not had room to put it back up, so I have to fiddle with
the editing of my photos more and more.

I love this card (I must admit) but the photos do nothing for it.

On a GREAT note . . .


You know I love The Twinery and we are happy to
be providing a prize from this fabby baker's twine company.
Make sure you get over to see all the yummy new
'Metallic Shimmer' twines !

I'll see YOU in The Play Date Cafe !
