Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge - Use Bright Colors's the weekend!! 
Are you as happy about that as I am???
One of my favorite things about Saturday's is that
a new challenge goes up at Kraftin' Kimmie!!

This week our hostess Krafty Gal Peggy would like to see
BRIGHT colors on your lovely creations!
Ohhhhh I love me some bright colors - they make me happy!!

My box card uses Pippi from the NEW February Release called
Book Pals - and lots of bright fun colors. Take a look
(I apologize for the poor photos - I had a terrible time getting a good one):

Here's another look from the top

These box cards are a lot of fun to make!
They fold flat to fit in an envelope and
when the recipient gets the card it literally pops open :o)
Kind of like this...

You can put a little or a lot in the inside sections -
in this case I went with a bit less but it's fun to add
lots of different elements/embellishments too.
I found this paper pack on sale at my local craft store
for a whopping $2.49 and decided to put it to good use.
I fussy cut around Pippi and then realized that she needed
a backing so that the coloring didn't show through the back side.
So...out came the scissors again for more fussy cutting.
Fortunately all of the other shapes on this card are
from die cuts and punches (easy peasy).
You leave a panel on the back for writing your message.

I am entering the following challenges:
