CSS Color Challenge

This month we have a color challenge to share with you. If you are following along you just came from Linda's blog. If not you should start at the beginning and hop through all of the blogs. And leave comments on each blog for a chance to win some free rubber. 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 chose the colors for this month. I was in a Pier One store a few weeks ago and fell in love with some dishes that contain my favorite colors. So here they are for our color challenge this month.

For my card I used iSpy Sketch 6.

Stamp Set: Faithful Florals
Card Stock: Green Apple, Turquoise Sea, & Sweet Corn

Now head over to Miesje's blog to continue on the hop.
