Colour Me #73

What's that, happy Wednesday you say?  Happy Wednesday back at you!!!  

Today is what I like to call Wacky Wednesday.  You are wondering why and I'll tell you... because we have a super fun and playful challenge for you over at Colour Me this week.  The inspiration and colors are down right wacky (good wacky- lol)!!!  


I'll be super honest, this challenge was hard for me.  My saving grace was this fabulous paper from Basic Grey Grand Bazaar collection, the colors were all cued up for me.  Some of the DP even had the Lost Lagoon, but I didn't pick those ones.  This DP sheet was one of my fave, so old and loud and perfect t mount with layers of Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss (both SU!) behind.  I used gold embossing powder to bling up the sentiment from Walter and Winnie.  Finally, I added the enamel dots from MME. 


So what bold statement do you plan to make with these colors?  There is a TON of inspiration over at the Colour Me blog.  The DT did such an amazing job with this challenge, please visit them and give them some bloggie love!

Katie Brooks  (that's me!)

They are having a DT call over at Colour Me, be sure to check it out.  I can honestly say, this has been such a fun challenge team and the colors have stretched my mind in new ways.  Go try out! :)

Katie as soon as I saw your card I thought how lucky you were to have paper with the challenge colors! So pretty, it needed nothing but the sentiment and a little embellishment. Perfect!
