Get Zesty with Karen's Doodles!


Welcome to Monday and another challenge day at Karen's Doodles. This week Joey has chosen the theme - Summer Zest. We want to see yellow, orange, lime green and a splash of blue. It really is a fun summer palate to play with!

I used Butterfly Puppy and think that he looks quite happy to be surrounded by such vibrant colors. The papers are from Kaisercraft.

There's not much time left for summer, so you better pull out your bright papers and have a go at this while you can. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Challenges:
Pile it On - Butterflies, bugs, bees
Stamptacular Sunday - Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails
Flourishes - Kid's Play (Hide and Seek - because my tag is hidden)
Papertake Weekly - White and bright
ABC - "A" August
Color Throwdown - yellow, orange, green
Friday Sketchers - sketch
Colour Create - Hot pink, saffron, warm orange
Stamp Something - pic inspiration
By the Cute and Girly - animal antics
Clearly Delightful - Tag, you're it
Dutch Dare - open

Gini, this is just the cutest card and I love the added tag, it would make a great bookmark. Your choice of paper and embellishments is fabulous and you have colored the image so wonderfully. Great job.
