I am just having so much fun creating backgrounds with the Ken Oliver"s Color Bursts. I was introduced to these amazing color powders at Club Scrap's Retreat. While playing with the color bursts, I realized how these would make awesome backgrounds with the new Watercolor Christmas Greetings to Go. Alone the cards are beautiful, but I wanted to add a little extra something to personalize them.
