Paper Dolls #18

This week's Paper Dolls Challenge is by Anika and it's a fun one!  Stop by the Paper Dolls blog and play along!

Her challenge was to find inspiration from a food wrapper or container.  I jumped at the chance to get near some candy!  I saw a packet of Skittles at the grocery store and it was calling my name so I brought it home.

Here's my card and the goodie that inspired it.
This card was so much fun to make! I really love the bold vibrant colors. And, since Halloween is just around the corner, I'm really loving orange lately. I used A LOT of circles in this card, but, hopefully, I was able to balance it.

In case you were wondering, yes, my kids and I ate all the Skittles as soon as I was done taking pictures. They were delicious!  Thanks for visiting my blog!
