color inspiration 37



Wow, I am really excited to show you today's card - it turned out SO much better than I was picturing in my head. I love it when that happens! I'm still using up my Love & Happiness rub-ons from last year's Sale-A-Bration - that's my resolution this year: Stop Hoarding Supplies!!! Sheesh... I used Kristina's color challenge for inspiration today; Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White. Now leave it to me to take perfectly good masculine colors and girl it all up! I did substitute Soft Sky for Baja Breeze because I don't have Baja Breeze yet.

Thanks for stopping by today,
Karen



recipe -
paper: chocolate chip, soft sky, old olive cardstock, pumpkin pie patterns dsp
accessories: pewter hodgepodge hardware, vintage brads, pumpkin pie striped grosgrain ribbon, scallop edge punch, trio flower punch, mini glue dots
