I'm not sure how it happened, but it's Wednesday already!  These Monday holidays really mess up my routine!  Anyway, it's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a beautiful color combo challenge:
This was perfect for me because all these colors are in a paper pack that I am trying to use up.  I LOVE the colors and patterns and now I'm down to just scraps, but they're too good to throw away!
So, everything on this card except the base itself is from scraps and all the patterned papers are from the same pack.  This was really quite easy.  If you want to make one for yourself, I'll give your the measurements to save you having to figure them out yourself.  If you are making an A2 sized card like I did, you need ten 1 1/4 in squares.  Then I rounded two opposite corners of each square.  Like I said, nice and easy.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Flower Power Separates, Daisy Outline, small", "Leaf Outline, small" and "You make me smile"
Dies: Spellbinders "Labels 37"; SU! corner rounder punch
