Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #24

For this week's Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge, we have to make a card based on the following inspiration photo.

Here is my take on the challenge.

I used the neon orange, yellow, aqua, brown and grey colors from the picture. I also used PTI Make It Market : Shakers and Sprinkles stamp and die set.

I started by die cutting the "Sprinkled" word and embossing it with neon orange Zing embossing powder. I adhered the word on a piece of PTI Aqua Mist cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with A-muse Slate ink pad.

I used four strips of woodgrain paper to frame the sentiment. I got this idea when I saw the shelves in the picture. The bucket of paint gave me an idea to add something that looks like paint drops on my card. I thought that the confetti die from the PTI kit would work, so I adhered some paper confetti on my card.

I'm actually quite surprised with this challenge. I did not like the color scheme when I saw the picture for the first time. After I finished the card, I realized that the colors are pretty nice.
