Color Challenge, NSD and Winner!

Happy, happy Saturday. I was supposed to be hanging with some friends in Lincoln, NE while my hubby ran the 1/2 marathon, but a back injury prevented him from running and kept us home. Really bummed about that. I decided to take advantage of being at home though and spend some time scrapping and joining in on some fun National Scrapbooking Day fun. Now it is 3:00 and I am just getting into my scrap room...of course! It never fails that my best laid plans tend to fall apart. That's ok, I've got an hour and I intend to do something!

I am sharing a card I made for S.W.A.T'S newest challenge. We are beginning May with some happy colors to inspire your scrapping. Spring is here and it is time to feel bright and cheery. Here is what I did with our color challenge.

 Beautiful colors, right?

My take:

I decided to create a cheery card for my mom for Mother's Day. The flowers in the picture reminded me of the flower washi tape I had and I added in from there. I love the feel these colors give and added a little bling in there too because who doesn't need a little bling?! I felt like a plain white background was a little dull so I embossed with a chevron embossing card and my Sizzix Texture Botique. Perfect!
How about joining us and creating something fun with these colors. You have all month to join and there is a fabulous prize up for grabs. Come see what the other members of the design team created and feel the cheer of spring!

Before I go I promised a winner from last week's hop. The random winner of some fun embellishments is Angela! Angela please contact me at dpeeples1 at and I will get this fun prize out to you. And you are right! We may be neighbors. You'll have to let me know where you live. I love meeting scrappy friends.

Have a super weekend and get creative!
