MCS Colour Challenge

We're having a colour challenge at My Craft Spot this week.  We've been away quite a bit over the past two weeks so I've had minimal crafting time between camping trips and a visit from my cousin from England, but did find time between laundry cycles to create!!

First of all, here's the colour challenge:
You are free to use any or all of the colours above!

And here's what I created:

To put my card together, I cut a few layers of paper, embossing them with a Stampin' Up chevron folder.  I then used Going Places for the car.  An EK Success punch was used for the border with some Blueberry baker's twine from My Craft Spot layered on top.

To create the sentiment "sun", I used My Craft Spot's Lacy Banner's metal dies, stamping the white layer with a circle from Postage Stamps and a sentiment from Tiny Tags. (Both stamp sets are from My Craft Spot)

Currently, I don't have a craft room as everything is packed up as we get our floors redone.  This wouldn't be too bad as we've been away so much.  (In fact, this post is pre-scheduled as we will be in Niagara Falls by the time you read it!!  I've got another cousin visiting from England so we are seeing the sites!!)  I'm hoping that I'll have my craft room back in order by the weekend.  I'm back to work next week so will need some "me" time too.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the colour challenge creations - and to link up your own project for a chance to win this week's prize!

Your card is so cute, Kate. I'm glad you've been having fun with your visitors. I've been away, too, so maybe we'll both get back into our craft rooms soon.
