Cupcake Craft Challenge #43 - Colour Challenge

This week's challenge is a colour challenge given to us by Ida. Now I haven't done many Colour Challenges before so please bear this in mind when you read the rest of this post.

Colour Challenge

What a challenge it was! I really struggled with this one. I made 3 cards on Saturday and just didn't like them at all, I eventually gave up and decided I would start over again on Sunday Morning. So I got up and did this card in about 20 minutes. I'm thinking that maybe I should have just done something else completely on Saturday because I don't think my Mojo was around at all. And to top it off, I've just realised that the challenge was also a card for kids. Oh well, kids have friends too! don't they? We'll just imagine that this is for a very mature kid.


Do have a look at the rest of the Design Team's cards, at least everyone else read the instructions better than I did.

Supplies Used:
1. Card - SU! Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink, and Yoyo Yellow CS
2. Papers - Over te Rainbow by Kay Miller
3. Stamps - SU! Occasional Greetings
4. Embellishments - On Board Blossoms and Basics chipboard Photo Corners
5. Tools - Paper Piercing Tool and Template from the SU! Crafter's Tool Kit
6. Mediums - SU! Stampin' Write Markers

I think it's wonderful - and it's very suitable for a kid! Imagine how perfect it'd be for any child to deliver that to their best friend on their birthday, along with a little gift, nicely wrapped in similar colours... It's be super! Great job! :D
