A Splash of Joy

The week goes by so quickly, doesn't it?!

It is already time for another challenge from

It's 'Color Splash' time over in The Cafe
and it's always a party when it's a splash.
I am typically a 'purist' when it comes to
a color splash challenge.
Black and white with just a hint of color...
but I loved these little banner letters from
Little Yellow Bicycle and really enjoyed making this card.'s just a little 'off-white' and I'm ok with that!

There are not enough hours in the day for me when it
comes to the new dies and EF's from Sizzix/BasicGrey.
I love this background and whenever I use it,
the sentiment on this card rings true.
The Twinery's 'Charcoal' bakers twine is the perfect hanger.
We are sponsored this week by

and the prize is pretty phenominal!
So make sure you pop over to The Cafe and check
out all the inspiration from our designers.

To quote my teammate Michele...
It's time to get your 'splash' on!
