Paper Sundaes Challenge #102 - Saturated Colours

Happy Sunday!  I am so excited, because today we have a new sponsor here at Paper Sundaes, Saturated Canary!  If you haven't seen Krista's images, you definitely need to check them out, they are adorable!  Krista is generously providing this week's winner with two digis of their choice.  Here is some information from Krista:

Hello! My name is Krista.  I am the artist behind Saturated Canary digis-- sweet, whimsical character stamps just waiting for a little color:).  Besides creating artwork and digis, I am a mama to two beautiful kiddies and happily married to my (really hot;) best friend. I love hanging out with my awesome family, running on my treadmill, cups of coffee, tattoos, my church, blogging, crafting, and thinking up new goals and dreams!  I'd love for you to stop by my personal blog, Saturated Canary, and say hello!!  I love making new friends!

In honour of our new sponsor, we are asking all of you to show us your 'Saturated Colours'.  If you're unsure what that is, here are a couple definitions:

Definition from dictionary.com: "of maximum chroma or purity; of the highest intensity of hue; free from admixture of white."

Definition from Mobileburn.com: "Color saturation refers to how vivid and intense a color is. For example, a display with poor color saturation will look washed out or faded. When a color's saturation level is reduced to 0, it becomes a shade of gray."

Remember, the winner and top 3 are now posted on the Thursday following the close of the challenge! :)

And now for some inspiration from our Sundae Girls:
