The Paper Players color challenge



Hi everyone!

Here's Sandy's color challenge this week:


I LOVE these colors!!
Of course the first thing I thought of was 4th of July...so I decided to go with it and made a card to send to one of my kids.





I knew I wanted to use my Impression Obsession Birdhouse dies, so I cut one out in each color. Then I cut out a white and a striped Indigo Island cross stitched rectangle from MB for the background. The stars I punched out with an old Marvy punch. I needed an anchor for my birdhouses, so I used a piece of old olive grass I had laying on my desk from another project.

If you would like to join us for this fun color challenge, head on over to The Paper Players and check it out!
