Craft It Up & Link It Up - Color Challenge

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It was sunny and in the mid 70's all weekend here...perfect weather :) It's time for another fun challenge at Craftin Desert Divas. The challenge this week is a Color Challenge...you must use at least one of the colors in the the inspiration photo. Our sponsors are: Artful Delights: A Card Kit; 3GirlJam: $10 G.C.; and Resale ClipArt: $10 G.C.


The papers for this card are from Prima's Sunny Days. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All. I've had several people ask about one and I purchased mine a few years ago online. But I just noticed that my local Hobby Lobby is now carrying them so you could use a 40% off coupon!!


The burlap in the center and the next two layers were cut with Spellbinders Card Creator Basics dies, followed by a Spellbinders Fancy Weave die. The butterfly is a Memory Box die and it was popped up wit foam tape. The flowers are from Michaels.


The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces. The tag is a Spellbinders Charmed I'm sure die. "Sunshine Smiles" is from Tara's awesome new Summer Lovin' stamp set:


You can purchase this stamp set, along with Punny and Teenage Dream in the Craftin Desert Divas shop HERE.


You can use one, two or all of the colors in the above inspiration photo.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Winged Things
  2. DL.Art - April Linky
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - April Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge, then Craft It Up & Link It Up!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

I love the amazing burst of colours on this card. It certainly attracted me for a second glance. The patterned paper is definitely a very 'busy' pattern but you managed to tone it down with bunch of yellow roses embellishment on the card...so pretty!!!

Gorgeous card Lisa! I adore the bright colors...so cheerful and just makes me smile! The papers and the layering all look fabulous! I also love how you always add texture-the burlap is an awesome touch! Absolutely beautiful my friend!
I hope you have a great week! It is gonna be a little cool here but at least the sun is shining and snow is melting like crazy. I have about 2 ft snow banks still around parts of my house and especially in my back yard but if we can get about 50 degrees for a wk it should be gone! Yippe!
Have a great wk my friend!

Such a fun card, with all these hot bright colors. Loving that MB butterfly with all the S/B dies on these layers. That burlap was great with all the gorgeous papers. Loved those patterned flowers too. Thanks for the H/L tip - will have to look at the local one. I've procrastinated on buying this tool, as I have so many that are gathering dust. Maybe one more, huh? TFS & Hugs
