The Paper Shelter Challenge #206 Make It Colourful

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week we are challenging you to make it colourful, so that means using lots of bright colours, no pastels at all!

I decided to use the fabulous new digi Sport Star and kept to a mostly primary colours palette with a squidgeon of orange tucked in there too. A fairly simple card from me this time, but I need to make a few non-frilly, yet girly cards for a friend at work to sell to raise money for her child's special swimming team to go to the Special Olympics in 2 years time. I said I would donate a few cards and some not so fussy as well, so she has a variety to sell.

This card is also for...

Papers: Real Red, Pacific Point, Whisper White & Brights DSP Stack (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card
