Rise and Shine colour challenge

I hope that everyone is healthy and finding lots of crafting to do to pass the time. I decided to take up the colour challenge on Colour Inkspiration on FaceBook. You can have a look at their page https://www.facebook.com/groups/349642308720075/
They post a picture and then list the colours in the picture for the challenge.
Below is the picture for this challenge

My interpretation of these colours:

I have been wanting to try the latest craze – “scrappy strips” and thought that the colours would work well with this. I used the Sale-A-Bration second release Rise & Shine stamp set which co-ordinates with the Cup of Cheer dies. Remember this stamp set is only available as a free level 2 item when you spend $180. If you want this, you will need to be quick as Sale-A-Bration ends on the 31st March.

During this difficult period, you can occupy your time locked at home by doing crafts. Stampin’ Up! is still operating, and anything that you order can be delivered directly to your door. Browse my online store or contact me by email or my FaceBook page if you need some assistance.

Stay well, stay healthy and keep crafting
