Just Add Color...Without Any Color

Last Tuesday we used Just Add Color with a we're using Just Add Color...Without Any Color!  If you missed Tuesday's post check it out here .

I know someone who is purchasing a new home and when I was looking through the Just Add Color Designer Series Specialty Paper I saw that sheet with the lovely detailed houses and thought this would make a great card for them...but I don't have any time this week for coloring--even the fastest in the west (or east) here's the design using that great paper with no coloring at all.. New home

Isn't that a terrific card and speedy too! It would make a great addition to a photo album if they are tracking progress with the building of the home! Since there's minimal color, it will fit into any color scheme.

I'm going to give you directions for creating this card and then I'll give you the supply list.  Use the Shop Now button at the side of the page to order what you need from my store.
