OCC: Color Challenge

Can you believe it's May already? I'm enjoying the sun (in between the raindrops here in Washington).

I can't think of a better way to welcome the sun than with this color challenge Anne Marie has prepared for us this week- Yellow, Kraft and White. A simple, beautiful, contemporary combination. 

I fell back on a sketch I enjoy. Not only is it a good layout, it's a perfect way to use up those little bits of left over designer paper that you just can't stand to part with.

I didn't have any printed Kraft paper so I pulled out my white ink and grabbed a few stamps to create my own. (I got to use a new set from Close to My Heart which I just love.)

Feeling inspired? Take a spin at this week's color challenge at Our Creative Corner. Take a look at what our other designers have created this week.
