Mark's Finest Papers Color Challenge 7

It's time for this week's MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge.  This challenge  is open to all types of paper crafts, including scrapbook pages. Each week we have a color or colors that you have to incorporate in your project. and you must use stamp(s) on the project.  

This week is a wild card week.  In a wild card, you get to pick your own colors within a specified guideline.  Our wild card is Bright Colors.  You can use any colors you wish for you project as long as they are bright colors.

Today's layout features a  photo of my parents in their younger years. They are on the beach in Atlantic City with my Aunt Janet (my dad's sister-in-law) and her son Billy.  My dad wrote on the back of the photo, so I made a copy of his writing and included it on the page.  I used stamps from the MFP I Need A Vacation stamp set.

The guidelines for the color challenge are simple:
1. Use the challenge colors as your main colors.  You can use any shades or hues of the challenge colors.
2. You can add any neutral colors (browns, grays, white, cream, kraft etc.) that you wish.
3. You can use an accent color in addition to the challenge colors, but it must be an accent only and not one of the main colors.
4. You must use stamps on your project.

You can use any type of stamps you wish, but if you use Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps, you will be entered twice for a chance to win our weekly stamp prize.   We start our weekly challenge every Thursday, and there's a new stamp prize each week so be sure to stop back by.

This week, one blessed winner will receive our Spring Flowers stamp...

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge.  To be eligible to win, be sure to link your project to MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge 7 and mention MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge in your blog post.  If you use MFP stamps on your project please note that in your post as well.  You have until 9:00 PM on Wednesday January 29th to link yo your project.
