Friends Having Fun Color Challenge #1!

Hello, hello! I am so excited! I am bringing you the the very first Friends Having Fun Challenge today! The first Monday of every month, I will give a Color Challenge! Here’s what I wrote on the FHF board:

Hello Everyone! I (Alison) am SO excited to be bringing you the very first Friends Having Fun Challenge! How lucky am I??? The first Monday of every month, the Kaleidoscope Krew and I will be bringing you a Color Challenge. Your mission is to then create a project using those colors! Anything goes! Make a card, scrapbook page, jewelry, altered item...anything you want! Just try to use colors as close to the ones I give you to work with! Wanna see the first set of colors???

And here is what I created:

I have had this card done for weeks now. When I first chose these colors, I was instantly inspired and knew exactly what I wanted to do. And since that doesn’t happen too often, I jumped on the project! I knew I wanted something vintage, hence this adorable image. I unfortunately cannot remember where I got this image though… if I figure it out, I will add it into this post! Then I knew I wanted to use something Anna Griffin style (which isn’t something I really ever do!). My mom happened to have Anna Griffin stamps that were exactly what I was looking for! Loved ‘em so much I used the same stamp on the inside and outside of the card!

Here’s a peek at the inside:

This stamp is from Verve, given to me by my wonderful friend, Tonya! The punch I used is from EK Success.

Here’s a close-up of those sweet little girls:

They are of course colored with my Spectracolor pencils. I just think this image is darling! I know! Totally not something I would usually do or say right? Well, I like to be multi-faceted!

I pop-dotted the heck out of this card! And I love the finished card. Just love it. This may very well be one of my favorites I’ve made in a long time! I just love the colors, the sweetness, and the vintage quality to it.

Now please go and see what the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew has created! They are so talented, and super inspiring!
