You Color my World



I made this fun card with yellow, blue and red cardstock which will be included in my next box for cards for hospitalized kids. I made the herringbone background with strips of cardstock, then embossed the entire piece with a square lattice embossing folder. The 3 square panels were water colored with matching inks, and the Lawn Fawn cute crayon was colored with Copics. The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn, and I cut it apart so I could make it fit on the card.

I based this card on the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #408, but instead of a square card, I opted for the A2 size.


I'm also sharing this with the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 7 - watercolor

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your world is colorful too!
