solid for a toral of 5 colors counting your backing

piece, for the card base.

Lay your image and backing paper on each of your
choices, layering with the papers in several different

positions to see the one that is different, but really

excites you visually......”Stepping out of the box”

Now, decide how you will use these on your card. You

treat these papers the same as any other papers you would use on your card.
Now you're Bein' Different. 
I colored the roses favorite color rose. 
Placed it on pink striped paper and used pink paper with swirls, dots,

HappiLeigh Scrappin Challenge

Time for a new

This week Barb chose the challenge. 

Barb came up with a recipe for us...

1 plain card stock
2 designer papers
3 embllies (more is ok, but not less)

I used Leigh's Another Birthday Set.  It comes with a Turtle and 2 sentiments, one saying "It's just another Birthday" and the other one "have you ever had one of those days?" which works perfect with the turtle on his back. 

I used only 3 pencils to color the image. 
A plain green card stock
2 designer papers with arrows pointing in different directions which I thought were perfect for an upside down turtle.
For the embellies...
I added a flatback pearl to each of the corner of the plain card stock.
I added a ribbon flower which is held to the card with a brad.
And there are 3 plastic 5 petal flowers in the corner and I added a flatback pearl to the center of each of them. 

Here is the finished card....

As always entering the challenge you get one entry in the drawing.
Use a HappiLeigh Image and you get two entries in the drawing. 
First place gets 3 HappiLeigh images
Second place gets 2 images
 and Third place gets 1 image
and all 3 winners get a badge to display on their blog.
