New Color Challenge at the Outlawz!

Before I show you my project, let me show you the Color Challenge image for this week.

I was wondering how I was going to use these colors, because they're normally not colors I often put together, (Although lately I have used the red and green more!) Now for some this might not be a challenge, but for me it was. And then I realized I have a Strawberry Shortcake I got on Facebook from Sassy Studio Designs. You should look it up! Great freebies! 

So here is my project: A Strawberry Shortcake box/cake. Put together, it's a tiered cake. Separated, it holds 2 gifts inside for the luck receiver! Now, I can't take credit for this. I actually got the idea from a book my sister loaned me, "Score, Fold, Create!" by Diana Crick, Penny Wessenauer, and friends.

I followed the directions, but honestly at first I was confused. It totally went together differently than I thought it would be. But...there's always a reason why the instructions are to be followed! It wasn't hard, once I realized that following the directions exactly were a must! Haha (insert *wink*) it is!  

I know I didn't color Strawberry Shortcake the way she was originally done by the original artist, but I wanted to get that blue in there. And because she was "Shortcake", I thought it only fitting to put her on top of a cake! Everything I used was in my stash. 

I hope you join in on the Color Challenge! It's always my favorite, because I can do any project, as long as I used those colors.

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, Jeanie - Scrapbookingmamaw
