Verve Beach Party Release Color Challenge

Tonight on the Verve Forum of SCS is a release party. Don't think I'll make it until the end, my bed is calling my name. Hubby worked late all week and I'm beat, LOL! Anyway, I wanted to share one of my cards that I made for the release week challenges. This one was a color challenge, aren't these fresh and fun summery colors? Love those bright colors. I used the sketch challenge on SCS this week for this layout.

On a funny note, I sure hope the saying that blonds have more fun is true. I had some highlights done this week and they are pretty blond. Usually they are more light brown, but came out pretty light this time. Not too sure about them, but it's only hair, ya know! Not going to fret about hair, but its been shocking every time I pass a mirror today. Who knows maybe I'll have so much fun with these blond highlights that I'll go all blond next time!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Stamps: Verve Big Wish
Ink: Memento Tux. Black
Paper: PTI ssw and Spring Moss, SU Only Orange, DCWV Citrus Stack

The orange accents really make this card shine -- it feels summery and happy, perfect for a birthday card! Impressive coloring technique on that tiny image, too.

You should update your avatar with you and baby girl so we can admire your highlights. I'm considering going more blonde for the summer months, too!

Beautiful card- very pretty! I just got one card done for the Verve challenge- I did the color challenge as well. Hey- will you need new clothes to go with your lighter hair???
