*Playing in Paradise #25*

It's time for another Playing in Paradise challenge over at the Scrapbookers Paradise Blog... please see my sidebar for a link to their blog!

This week, the challenge is to use the following photo as inspiration for your creation...
I wasn't quite sure where I wanted to go with this challenge, so I used the quilt idea and some of the colours.  I used a technique called Bargello which I haven't done in quite a long time.  Bargello has been adapted to card making and papercrafting from the quilting industry.  Do a Google search for directions on how to do this great technique and try it for yourself!
Items Used: 
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait, Pacific Point
*Images: PTI Mega Mixed Messages
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Pacific Point
*Tools: Big Shot;  Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 14
*Challenges:  PlayingInParadise#25

I invite you join us in playing this week... simply add your card to the links at the bottom of the challenge post before midnight on Thursday for your chance to win a prize from Scrapbookers Paradise as well as a chance to play along with the Design Team in a future challenge.

Take a few minutes to check out what the rest of the Design Team has been up to...
