#5


The Grab Bag Giveaway Winner from this post is #5, Chari M., as picked in random from the oldest. Why #5 I asked? About twenty reasons and five minutes later, the general consensus was that at age five he did a lot of fun "stuff" like  play and sleep in, you know, the important things in life...


This card came about by using the colors from Color Cue #16 and Funky Flowers from WPlus9. I added some rhinestones to the funky flowers and carried the colors down to some paper strips attached to the base of the card whereas the layer with the flowers and sentiment have been popped up with dimensionals.

  4. What a creative way to use all of the colors, but keep your design simple at the same time. I love the pattern out of the lines you created. I love that stamp yet still haven't used it. I'd say it's high time to pull it out, eh? Is PCD going to release again soon? I've missed you there.
