2 Takes on a Trend in The Classroom

Today I'm in The Classroom at Ellen Hutson to share one of two cards based on a Color Trend ... always a challenge for me - you know I'm color-phobic, right? 

Take a peek at this inspiration:


Inspired by the sweet chop sticks, the colors, and the fun black graffiti, here is where I was taken:


I created a white panel using one of the newest Essentials by Ellen: the confetti die from Yay.  Just when the recipient least expects it?  Cue the Confetti! and out comes a bounty of colorful confetti when opened!  Oh yes, I had to use the Confetti Flinger die ... Julie shows how much fun it is here.  She is totally right about that doing it again, and again!

Let's head over to The Classroom to see Take 2!

Fabulous take on the sketch, Michele! Love the bright colors with black & white, and the fun of confetti jumping out of the card. It looks like the confetti change colors from white (front panel) to bright colors! Hideko :-)

What a fun inspiration board, lots of bright happy color! Your card is also full of bright happy color! I really like how you used the confetti die to make the background piece. Those colorful strips are terrific, too. I think the confetti flinger is a lot of fun. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

So bright and cheerful and so much fun, Michele. I was tempted but I know someone who would have a fit with all the confetti flying around. ;)

This card almost made me pack up and go home! lol! It is so perfectly inspired by the photos, that it took me a good long time to come up with something else! It is so happy and bright! Well done - your fear of colour didn't show at all!
