KWerner Color Challenge #53

Hey everyone! How is your long weekend? Mine has been pretty good! My husband and son went on a Father & son camping trip on Friday Night and all day Saturday (they had a great time), and my daughter went to her Grandma's house Friday and came home late that night, then she went back the next day. I had all night Friday and all day Saturday to craft. I wanted to go shopping on Saturday, but I decided to wait until Monday for the Memorial Day Sales! We went to a fish fry Sunday after church, it was so nice outside, we had a great time! I did go shopping today for the Memorial Day sales and I also used my coupons at every store I went to. So I was happy about that! :)

While I was home by myself, I made LOTS of cards. I have been making cards for church and I tried to just use scraps, because I have so many!! I will be sharing those soon! I also got to make some cards for the color challenge. I made this one for our church and used Kristina's challenge for the colors. Look how cute Anthonette's little boy is with his little robot! :) I wanted to do something pretty simple for this one, because the colors are so bold. I got the idea from an old SU! idea book and used all scraps for it too! Well here's the card!

Supplies:

Paper- (all scraps from stash) Red, blue, white, black CS, Making memories- yellow striped paper

Stamp- Studio G- Prayer stamp

Ink- StazOn- Jet black

Accessories- Black marker, Martha Stewart- butterfly punch, square punch

We both thought in quadrants for this challenge, but you (you genius, you) actually sectioned yours off! Love it!

PS: I'm being crazy picky about who I'm giving the Lemonade Stand award to -- LOL. Just in case you were wondering why you haven't seen it pop up on my site yet. Didn't want to post until I knew exactly who to give the award to!
