What, no white?

smARTworks team member Trish D. challenged us to make a card with no white paper whatsoever. I'm generally afraid of too much white on my card anyway...this is what I came up with: I can't help but smile every time I see that picture - what a cute kid (ok, I am biased, but seriously...)! The stamp image is from the "LOL" set. The small rectangle comes from "Frames" and the single word "Smile" is a part of the smARTbucks reward set called "Big & Bold". This is a pretty simple card but I love the vintage feel of it, and the colors. And the buttons all strung together!

Be sure to check out the rest of the team's colorful cards:
Trish @ Tah-Dah!
Susan @ In the Works (for Peggy too)
Giovana @ A Place to Praise and Craft
Donelda @ Wiggy’s World
Donna @ Dee’s Studio
...and if you had a chance to play the challenge, be sure to post a link so we can see your project too!
