STAMPTV CSS ALUMNI COLOR CHALLENGE MARCH

Hello blog friends and welcome to another StampTV CSS blog hop!  Do you feel spring in the air?  I sure do. 
If you've come here from my friend and the extremely talented Brenda's blog , you're in the right place.  If not, you'll want to go back to the HOP BEGINNING and see each creation of this fantastic team. 

Here's the very cool inspiration we're using from Pier One. 



 Join us, this is a fabulous color challenge for spring...you'll have so much fun with these colors!  Just create a card or project using the inspiration and post it to the StampTV Forum and 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!

Here's my card:



I created a faux tile background, an attempt to replicate the patterens of the dishes, using Gina's fantastic Elegant Elemants and Framed Greetings for a setiment to frame this fabulous concertina butterfly.  A design by Shriley Chillman. (Thank you, Shirley)  My Gina K Pure Luxury card stock choices were White, "Ocean Mist", "Fresh Asperagus" and "Lemon Drop". 
Now, please hop on over to Brenda's super talented Mom, Geri's blog and see her fabulous project using these colors. 
Thank you for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment.  You'll  be entering a chance to win a bag of fantastic Gina K stamps.
