Fri. 3.16.12 CSST Alumni Color Challenge

Welcome to another CSST Alumni challenge. We have some fabulous inspiration for you. If you arrived from  JOY's blog, you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE.
Check out these gorgeous colors!!! Melissa S. picked a great color combo. It's so Spring-like!!!!



****Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 20), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!***

I made my card using Melanie's "Wild at Heart" set, colored with Faber-Castell Gelatos.  I then stamped a flower from Melanie's "A Year of Flowers" set.  I stamped all three flowers with Memento and colored with Copics.  After cutting them out, I shaped them and popped them up on some blue grosgrain ribbon. The bird and the birdhouse are Silhouette cut files.  My card base is GKD Key Lime card stock.


Thank you for hopping along, and now your next stop is  KAY 's blog.  Wait until you see what she's going to share with you!!! Thank you for stopping by!   ,,,Karen
