Card In a Box - Colour Me...Creative! CMCC #18

Hey friends, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for another awesome challenge at Colour Me...!  This week is the rare 5th week of the month which means Anything Goes! - I decided to go with 5 colors to keep with the trend: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate and Brilliant Blue (retired).


 In the past few weeks two of my Colour Me teamies have made their own gorgeous versions of the card-in-a-box I've been seeing around lately (check them out by Tara and Brenda).  Their awesome creations inspired me to try my hand at it.  I made this card for my co-workers for National Lab Week, this is the perfect stamp set for lab nerds like us!  The hardest part of this card was trying to get a pic that did it justice.

 The card and that mad scientist were are hit at the office :)

Check out the great inspiration from the other team members and link up your creations, too.  I can't wait to see your goodies in the gallery --  You all have really been showing us some gorgeous cards, keep it up!
