Whimsical Wednesdays Color Challenge

Morning everyone!
It is time again for another Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge!
This weeks challenge is a Color Challenge!

Your inspiration for this challenge is to use the colors Red and Yellow and you can choose another color or colors from the photo.

Isn't this such a fabulous craft room? Wish mine looked like this :)

So for my project I made a "sweet" card
My card is a standard A2 size and I used paper from Jillibean Soup~Chilled Strawberry Soup Collection in Whipped Cream.
I just LOVE this paper and the fun polka dots.

My cherries were cut at 4" using the Preserves Cartridge. There are 2 different red papers for the cherries and 2 different green papers for the stems/leaves. Both were scrap from my stash.

The sentiment is from Emma's My Creative Time ~~This and That~~ stamp set. This is such a great stamp set with great everyday sentiments.

Not too long ago I watched a video on how to make your own skittles. I gave it a go and made a bunch in different colors using Tim Holtz alchol ink.
I used some watermelon ones for the embellishments on this card.
I also used my favorite white gel pen for some added details on the cherries.

Hope my card, the DT's projects and this great craft room photo gives you lots of inspiration to join into this weeks challenge. Remember you have 2 weeks to link up and join in on the fun!

Make sure you check out the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Blog for all the other great ideas!

Have a GREAT day and happy craftin' :)
