Just Add a Colour Challenge - JAI #262

With the temperature dropping and Autumn quickly turning into Winter the leaf colours on the deciduous trees are providing a dramatic display amongst the evergreens. Such vibrant and rich colours are so nice to see and I love the "crunch" underfoot of the fallen leaves as it always brings back childish memories of walking through them on the way to school. Of course in those days we didn't necessarily have to rake them up though ;-)

And talking of lovely colours :-) this week at Just Add Ink we have a beautiful "Just Add Colour "Challenge that's been suggested for you by Di.  Such gorgeous fresh colours and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and see all the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you.

These fabulous colours are some of my current favourites (If you didn't know that already :-) ) and you can combine them on any type of project you wish for the Challenge too! So I decided to go with the fun Mini Treat Bag and make something other than a regular card this time.

So here is the "card in a bag" with a decorated Tag ready for gifting. Don't you just love that Pom Pom Trim lol?! And I am very happy to report that there are little Pom Poms coming in a another colour very 
soon too :-)

And here together with the inside  :-) 

A combination of Kinda Eclectic and the Butterfly and Treat Bag framelits with a little Hemp Twine and touches of bling thrown in for good measure :-) The message can be written on the back of the card.

Card stock: Calypso coral, Pear Pizzaz, Pool Party, Vellum
Designer Series Paper: Best Year Ever (from Saleabration)
Inks: Crumb cake, Pool Party, Pear Pizzaz
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic, Four You
Accessories: Big Shot, Mini Treat Bag Framelit, Butterfly Framelits, Banner Framelits, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Hemp Twine, Pool Party Seam Binding, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to head over to Just Add Ink to see all the wonderful projects the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to see what you will create with these gorgeous colours too.

Happy stamping until next time,
