A Fun Fun Fun Color Challenge

This week's color challenge on the Little Paper Shop blog is a classic - red, blue and yellow.   I went the fun route and created this quick gift for a co-worker.  

The sun and wishing you fun sentiments are from "Jena Beach".  I was leaning towards making the sun look more like a flower on the front of the box, so I inked up one stripe from the "Behind the Scenes" set for the stem.  The box is made from the Perfect Presentation template - "Gift to Go".  It is filled with peanut M&Ms and the box holds a lot - I used up over 1/2 a 14 oz bag!!!

Here are some closeups. 



Link up your own classic color creation to the Little Paper Shop blog HERE, by Sunday June 13 at 9 pm.  Check out what the rest of the design team did for more inspiration too!


Have a wonderful start to your week and try to find some time to have fun in the sun.  As you are reading this post I am having fun in the Arizona sun.  Okay, "fun" probably is not the right word as I am at a conference and away from my stamping supplies!!!
Sunny Smiles Anyway, Julie

  1. Did you cut it with your cricut? If so, wasn't it awesome? LOL I don't want to hand cut a darn thing anymore. I'm spoiled. I love how you decorated your box. I have such a hard time with primary color but obviously you don't! Fabulous work my friend!
