Artful Delight Blog Hop! (Day 3)

Hi there friends!! Welcome to the third and final day of the Artful Delight birthday blog hop! For a reminder on how it all works, or if today is your first visit, please visit my day 1 and day 2 posts to read all about it and catch up...

So, for today we have a color challenge for you! It's all about creating with pink, white and kraft...


Supplies Used From The Artful Delight September Kit: Crate Paper Farmhouse Paper - Handpicked
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey Ink Kraft Cardstock; Bazzill White Cardstock; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; Studio G Stamp; EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch; Basic Grey Pearls

I decided to do a set of mini notecards for this challenge. It seems like I'm always needing a small little card for something or another, so I try to make up little sets like this as often as possible, and this was perfect for that!

So our last challenge is super easy to create with right? If you decide to make a project with these colors, be sure to link it up over at Artful Delight for your chance to win! Just upload your project in the linky tool on the blog (look in the sidebar once you're there) and label your entry with the challenge you are playing along with and your name. The challenges will remain open to play along with until September 30th and then all winners and prizes will be announced on Artful Delight's blog that evening.
