Stamp to Lose March 29 - April 4

Here are this week's challenges:
1- Stamp on a paint color sample strip and use it on a card or scrapbook layout. You know those neat paint sample strips you can get at Lowe's, Home Depot, or other places that sell paint??? Use one of those! In order to stamp on them though, you need to use a Brilliance pad or Stayz-On ink. THEN, once you've stamped the image, color it in with watercolor pencils and adhere the sample strip to your card or layout. (just DON'T do the watercoloring... only use the pencils to color in the image.)
2- Since April starts this week, stamp something that has to do with showers... you know the old saying "April Showers bring May flowers"
3- Stamp anything! That's always better than nothing!!

As you can tell, I went with the first challenge. I am having trouble with placement of the saying on this card, so I'll probably put it on the inside, I would like for the card to say, A true friend never goes out of style. If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know, because I'm more than willing to hear where all of you think I should place it. I'm stumped at this point, but really like the card! I know I would never have put these together if it wasn't for this challenge, so thank-you Pam and Amy! As always, it was a lot of fun.

thats beautiful is the saying a stamp? Maybe you can color in thewords one at a time and place them along the side? Or the inside would work too.

I'm thinking along the same lines as Christina... along the side, maybe? That's probably what I would do... I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!! Aren't those strips lots of fun?? Thanks for doing the challenge!! As always, I truly enjoy seeing your work and am inspired by your talent!!
