PPA287 – A Color Challenge from Katy McGloin

I have been wanting to play along with this colour challenge ALL week. Sometimes however I do actually need to do some other work first! I love the Pals Paper Arts challenge and this week is no exception. If you haven't been over to that Challenge blog you must do yourself a favour and go and check it out and even play along! Click here to head over there.

Here is this weeks Colour challenge - 

When I saw the colours I felt fresh and almost a beach feel - for those that live in Australia. It reminded me of the colours that the hotel rooms on the Gold Coast would be in the 70s but with a modern twist. Great colour choices Katy.

Here is my card - 


How fresh and fun is that card?? it came together so fast - I think because I was so inspired by the colours. Plus I have made something very similar in the past - so it's always good to go back and CASE yourself. (copy and selectively Edit) This is the similar card that I made using just black and white with this stunning Botanical Blooms stamp set. Click Here to see it.

Do you recognise the sentiment? Maybe not?? It is from the Sparkle and Shine Stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It is such a fantastic stamp set - and if you haven't got it yet.... You need to! Page 31 of the Occasions Catalogue.

So if you live in Australia it might be a great time right now to go for a shop in my Stampin' Up! Online store.

You can search for these items in the store. If you use my current Host code 3KVTDRRK you will receive AMAZING rewards at the end of the month.  Click below to shop or find out more about my Host Code Club you can be a part of.
