Just Add Color

I'm back again tonight with another challenge card. This one is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge...Just Add Color.
I don't know about you, but I save everything from the smallest piece of paper to things I  made and ended up not using. I even save all of the extra pieces I get when I die cut something. You just never know when you might be able to use it. That's what happened when I sat down to work on my card. The first thing I always do is look through my "extra" pieces.  Look what I found! I colored this image last Fall and didn't use it.

To create the pattern on the bottom half of the card I used one of the oval stamps from my Little Labels set from PTI using VersaMark ink. I created the sentiment using one of the many great free fonts from Fonts For Peas. I typed what I wanted in the middle of my word document and printed it on printer paper. Then I lined my card up so the sentiment would be where I wanted it. I taped the card front down faceing up and ran it back through my printer. It's important to make sure the leading edge is taped down good. This is a great way to customize your cards to say whatever you want.



  1. very pretty coloring!! love the background you created with little labels!!

  2. Beautiful card. Great coloring. I am like you. I save every little scrap. Sometimes I surprise myself and use it. Love the double bow.
