100% Pure Happiness



This is my take on Dawn McVey's color challenge. I was a little skeptical at first, but when I read Dawn's advice to use large amounts of the neutral colors and keep the bold bright colors to a minimum, it all came together. Guess what - I LOVE it! These colors are so yummy together. Once I finished my card I started noticing this color combo all around - strawberries sitting in a red bowl on my grey/black countertop. Even a box of Coke Zero up against my green wall!! Inspiration is all around :0)

Sorry I don't have a lot of deets on this one :0( The pp is from a free pack they gave away at Archivers for spending WAY too much money and the packaging is long gone!! The flowers I'm guessing are from Prima?? I got those in some yummy blog candy I won from the VERY talented Heidi Van Laar :0) Chipboard was from a pack of assorted pieces I got at Target. The rest I think I've got :0)

Thanks for stopping by . . . and have an inspiring day!!
