  • Tree adhered with 2 thicknesses of foam tape
  • CARDZ TV STAMPS "A Day At The Beach" for the "Relax" sentiment

Okay, so I have to admit... this was a hard challenge for me. I couldn't think of an object to cut out with these colors. But then I saw my Design Team Sister's OWL card (that would be Michelle @ Purple Monkey Moments) and I thought - I can cut ANY object I want and just make it these colors. It doesn't have to make sense. It doesn't have to mimic nature. This is art! I'm free! I could have a purple sunshine if I wanted it. And that, my friends, is why....
  1. I love being on different design teams because the DT sisters are so amazingly talented
  2. I love visiting challenge blogs and seeing what everyone is creating and submitting, and then I like to play along myself!
So... I hope you all will play along with us. Make something creative, different, and all YOU. We can't wait to see what you submit! Have fun! Smiles!

One more thing before I go.....
