Colour your world with paint chips.

Hello all!
Just popping in with a colourful card made primarily for the Anything Goes challenge at Stampotique.  I said in a previous posting that I wanted to reduce my craft stash and after having a tidy up of sorts the other day, I came across my bundle of paint chip samples.  Now I have used these before but this time I decided to see if I could use them with my Cameo.  I did tape the sample cards on to my Cameo mat as I didn't want them to move around but the cutting worked fine!
      I stamped Fleur Belle onto a large paint chip card and then cut some topiary trees, butterflies and flowers from an assortment of other samples (confession time - I have rather a lot of these !)  If you don't have a cutting machine, you can easily use punches on these cards - check out Pinterest for some gorgeous paint chip art here .


               I would also like to enter this into the challenges at Fan-tastic Tuesday , Loves Rubber Stamps and Through the Craft room door.

Thanks so much for popping in - hope that polar vortex isn't freezing you out too much!
