Pink and Green - Stamp Simply #130

Are you ready for a Stamp Simply color challenge? Sharon's got a gorgeous combo for us this week:

Friday, March 12 - ssnotime130 - A COLOR CHALLENGE -- I love color challenges, always have, and like to incorporate them from time to time here. This week let's go with a favorite of mine -- PINK AND GREEN, with added BROWN as an option. Anything goes - have fun and can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I decided to go CAS with this card. My base is Dark Chocolate with a layer of Sweet Blush. I rounded the upper corners, and it's very hard to see in my picture, but I embossed the top part with PTI's new Impression Plate: Tin Types. Then I stamped the triple flower image from Blomming Button Bits twice--to get 5 stems--on Rustic White card stock, round the upper corners and added a little "grass" border. Then I stamped the sentiment (also from Blooming Button Bits with Dark Chocolate, tied a Spring Moss ribbon around, and added the Sweet Blush Vintage buttons. Stamped simply, for sure!

So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime130 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
