CYCI#133 Color Challenge

My very first blog post!

I was stuck trying to think of a card to make my oldest son for his birthday coming up - BAM! The CYCI#133 Color Challenge was posted and it hit me! I used Ken Oliver's Color Burst to make the watercolor background. I then splashed some Fun Stamper's Journey silks and some black Wink of Stella to add that bit of sparkle, but not too much! I cut out both dies using Papertrey Ink's True Black card stock. I added a layer of true back card stock to the watercolor paper and mounted it all on Papertrey Ink's white card stock using dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my first blog post.

See ya next time.
