The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to create your own background without using any designer paper. I was inspired by Vicki's great card here, so I gathered my markers and just made one big mess! lol The papers are from the inside cover of a watercoloring paper pad, and I knew one day I'd find a use for that softly textured paper! I colored the papers randomly with markers in many colors and just had fun. I colored the crayons from the Lawn Fawn stamp set, along with the sentiment, adding negative snippet bits from border cuts. I fussy cut the crayons and popped them up on foam tape. Those little Lawn Fawn smiley faces get me every time :)
I'm also entering these cards into the Shopping our Stash #220 challenge which is "show us your smile" - as well as the Snippets Playground #195 which is always to use snippets.
Here's wishing you a colorful day, and thanks for stopping by!
