Paper Dolls-Challenge #5

Hi, everybody! It's Michelle (abzzymom).  It's my turn to issue this week's Paper Dolls Challenge and I've decided to make it about color.  To choose the colors, I laid out my inks, closed my eyes, and picked three colors. Your challenge is to create a card or project using these colors.

(A big THANK YOU to Katie for helping me with my post by making the color challenge box above.)

Here's the card I came up with.  I used the Out On a Limb set, which is one of my go-to sets.

The card base looked plain so I used the Giga Guidelines impression plate for the background to give it a little texture. 

Here's a close-up of my "butterfly" bow with the button.

This year, I promised myself I would also complete the inside of any card I make.

I can't wait to see what you create using these colors. If you don't have these exact colors, use something that's close. It's all about having fun!  Bonus points for finishing the inside of your cards too!

Hope you can play along with the Dolls!  Remember to add your specific post to the link tool below.
