Celebrating Color!

Here is this weeks card for Stampin' Royalty's Color Challenge!    I took apparent inspiration from this fantabulous card by Torico  which i LOVE and did not do it justice in the least, but this was my interpretation of it!  It actually didn't photograph very well, and looks better in person, very fun and cheerful! 
Everything on it is pretty self explanatory except i think maybe i should note that i drew the black lines with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker using a ruler, and also went over the letters of  'Celebrate' with Crystal Effects.

Punched Out!

Here is this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge sample card using punches!  It's a 4x4 card, using a very simplistic style.  My goal with this card was to make a statement with the colors.  This was very easy to put together and could be done in about 10 minutes once you have all your supplies ready!  besides the cutting of the cardbase, there is no other special cutting!  You can actually use lots of different sentiments for this card...Thinking of You, Thank You, Happy Birthday, Just a Note....very versatile!  Oh, and you can use scraps in the punches!!
The one thing i did that i might need to point out is I sponged the edges of the vase and doily, and used a straight mask so i could sponge the 'table' part.

A Couple Pages

It's Scrapbooking month!  Here is a double page layout that i did using My Digital Studio!  There are so many great things about digital scrapbooking that make it so easy!  I was able to use the color picker tool to get the exact colors i wanted to that i could make the elements match my daughters sweatshirt! I also used the graphic on her sweatshirt as the overall inspiration for the pages.  I really have to do more digital scrapping!
