I did it!

I did it! I tried something new - I used Ken Oliver Color Burst on today's card!!!

Okay, can you tell I'm excited?

But let me start at the beginning...

Challenge #254

Theme: Anything Goes with Tic Tac Toe

Okay... I just had to go with the vertical row in the center: lots of blue, own background (where the Color Burst happened), and metal (the brads are metal).

This was my first attempt at using the Ken Oliver Color Burst... my background is messy (so are my fingers) but it's not too bad for my first attempt.

Here's the inside of my card:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

So very cute Jeanette. I have never heard of Ken Oliver's Color Burst. Thought you might explain that in your blog post, but I'll go goggle it and see what I can find. Your background is fabulous.

I have been wanting to try the color burst background. I really like the look of it, Jeanette! The blues are perfect for this adorable little guy in his coveralls!

How sweet is this! I've never tried the color bursts but I've seen some backgrounds that look like a real mess and was hesitant. Yours looks beautiful and perfect as a background for this l'il guy!
