Color Challenge with Doodlebug

Today's Project:  Color Challenge
Created For:  Doodlebug Designs

For the next two weeks, Doodlebug Designs is featuring a color challenge over on their blog.  The design team was asked to pick a Doodlebug color to play with this week and I chose Blue Jean!  It was easy for me to focus on this color because as a mom of two boys, blue has always been the color-of-choice around my house.

I decided to do three very different cards for my project so that I could play with lots of different Doodlebug goodies.

For the first card, I created a mason jar shaker card using a cut file designed by Lori Whitlock.  I loaded it up with blue jean boutique buttons and sequins, along with one red button for a pop of color.

For the second card, I used one of Doodlebug's Create-A-Cards and punched a star in the top.  Then in true "Melinda Spinks" fashion I added lots of sprinkles and gems to give the star some shine.  The doodles card stock stickers are perfect for adding a quick sentiment.

Finally, for my last card I used another cutting file from Lori Whitlock to make a sweet pair of overalls for a baby card.  This one came together easily with some pattern paper from the Snips and Snails collection and sprinkled star vellum from Patriotic Picnic.  Of course, I also had to have a few Doodlepop critters peeking out of a pocket!

Here's a link to more of Doodlebug's Blue Jean color collection.  That's all for me today ... I hope you'll stop by Doodlebug's Blog this week and check out all of the projects from the Design Team's Color Challenge!
