Scrapbook City & Kaisercraft

I'm early this time!  I found some time this weekend to work on the latest Scrapbook City challenges.  I also thought I'd combine challenges again, so I used the Kaisercraft "Mix it up" Newsletter challenge for my layout.

SBC is holding a colour challenge this time - lots of brights - which totally go against my typical mojo.  So, I pulled up the Kaisercraft newsletter and found the following criteria:
  • Stripes
  • 2 photos
  • Photo frame/frame
  • Flower
So here's what I came up with:
It's not too fancy, but seems to satisfy all the criteria.  Going to have to work on my ability to WOW when I'm outside my comfort zone....

My card is simple too - again, find it really challenging to work with brights.  My own design on a Kaisercraft gate fold card:

So, time to check out some other challenges, but fingers crossed as always for these random draws :D

Here's the RAK:

Check out and tell them I sent ya!  :D
