SCRSC46 - Favourite Colour(s) challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we would like to see you use your favourite colour/s on your project.

[Apologies for the not-so-great-quality photo - I will update as soon as possible]

My two favourite card-making colours are turquoise and green, and my all-time favourite accent colour is chocolate brown.  Also, a personal favourite colour of mine is yellow.  I always find yellow a tricky colour to craft with, and unfortunately it's a colour that I just can't wear, but that doesn't mean I don't love it! So I have turquoise in my sky, green in my grass, and yellow in the sun and car, all finished with some Vintage Photo distress inked edges!

I have followed this week's Card Patterns Sketch #118 for the layout.  As soon as I saw this sketch I  knew I had to play along with my Cruisin Chloe stamp!  The sky paper is October Afternoon, the paper for grass and paper pieced car is from Basic Grey, and I made the sun and road from Coredinations cardstock scraps. Oh and the sentiment is computer generated and printed straight onto the card base!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Card Patterns Sketch #118
- The Corrosive Challenge #119 Summer Colours
- Crafty Hos' Summer, let the fun begin!
- Creative Cowgirls Summertime Fun
- Paper Cutz #94 Travel
- Crafts and Me #37 Punch it Out

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

Finally I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to our new SCRS DT members: Amber, Elena, Kadie, Mary and Piali. If you popped by the SCRS blog yesterday you would have read the exciting news that Berenice and Karla from Karber Digital Images are going to start releasing new images in RUBBER and these stamps will be sold in the US throught the SCRS store!! Yippee!! So Amber, Elena, Kadie, Mary and Piali are the SCRS 'Karber' DT! Welcome gals!
