CFC93 - Colour Blocks


For this week's CASual Fridays Challenge - Colour Blocks.



This challenge is right up my alley - it inspires graphic style with bold colours, two of my favourite things!

I used Papertrey's Fresh Alphabet (I bought two of them, so that I would be able to spell words like Happy without having to re use the p - these days most alphabets come with extra letters to make stamping common sentiments like Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas a little easier). Then I used Papertrey's Background Basics: Superstripes to add the colours.

Love your non-solid blocks of color, Ardyth! It really makes the card so much lighter. Fantastic idea. Thanks so much for joining the CASual Fridays Challenge!
