CSS Hop-- It is a Color Challenge one!

  You came from  Linda 's blog and now you can see what I made ---two cards for this hop.  The first one uses yellow, white, light grey, and green.  The second one yellow, white, grey and pretty Rose pink.
All stamps used are from Gina K Designs.  This first card was stamped with a flower from the Becky Oehlers Bold Blossoms set, on a chicken wire BG that I cut out with the Cameo machine.  I used Copic greens, for my color besides a light grey.  I trimmed the card with green and white gingham paper from GKD.
For my second card, I used the scalloped oval, and Gina K Designs CS, for the BG pieces.  I stamped the flower, from the GKD Petals and Wings stamp kit.  I colored with Copics and shaded with Memento Gray ink


Be sure to leave comments on all our projects today, because there will be a prize given away!  Now head over to see what JOY's got for you to see. Haven't you been blown away to see all this goodness?
