"Color Me Happy!" Cardz TV Stamps Challenge #13

Welcome to the "Color Me Happy!" Cardz TV Stamps Challenge #13!  Mary over at Cardz TV gave our Stamp Design Team a Challenge to a card or layout or craft project, any theme,  using marigold yellow, royal blue, and a rich purple.  We can use small amounts of white and black.  For the sentiments, I used Cardz TV Stamp sets "Encouraging Thoughts" and "Good Friends."

I decided to make this type of accordion card.  The blue cardstock came from Bo Bunny.  I cut it at
5 1/2 x 11, and scored it at 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2, and 8.  For the panels I used marigold Bazzil.  The first panel was cut at 1 1/4 x 5 1/4, middle panel 2 1/4 x 5 1/4, and the back panel at 2 3/4 x 5 1/4.  I ran them through the Cuttlebug using the Lattice folder.  For the white sentiment mats, I used a Spellbinder die.  The watering can came from the Walk In My Garden cartridge and was cut at 2 1/2 using the shadow feature.  The umbrella came from the Create A Critter Cartridge and was cut at 2 1/2.  I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder and dotted it with a white marker.  The flowers are from Prima, and of course I had to add a little bling.

Now it's your turn!  All you have to do is create a card, layout, or other craft project for any theme using marigold yellow, royal blue, and a rich purple.  You can use small amounts of black and white.  Once you've finished, head on over to Mary's blog and enter a photo of your project and a link to your blog into Mr. Linky.  You have until Midnight, Thursday, August 23rd to enter.  Mary will be using to pick the winner.  She will announce it on Friday, August 24th.  Easy peasy right?  I hope you take the Challenge along with us!  Mary will be giving away a set of Cardz TV Stamps to the winner.

I hope you check out the other talented ladies on the Design Team!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
