5/22 Color Challenge & I'm a GSG!

I am so excited to share some awesome news - I've been invited to be a Great Swaps Girl!! I will be in Group Two. (Doing the happy dance!) Well, to celebrate, I decided to go straight to the GSG site and do a color challenge. And, this was challenging! The colors to use were Kraft, Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery. Now Kraft and Certainly Celery I use often, but hmmmm, how to combine Cameo Coral into the mix? Turns out, I have a great supply of Cameo Coral paper (since I hardly ever use it!) so I decided to make my card base Cameo Coral and then proceeded to cover most of it up with panels of Certainly Celery and and designer paper from the Ginger Blossom pack. But, as the card evolved, I started getting excited about it and now I'm just thrilled with it!! Yes, this is why I stamp . . . it's a high! Kind of hard to explain to someone who isn't a stamper, but I'm sure that most of you reading this can relate!

Supplies I used:

Stamps: You Make Me Happy (retired)
Paper: Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Kraft, Ginger Blossom DP
Ink: StazOn Black
Accessories: Fine Tip Black Marker, Large Oval Punch, Certainly Celery Grosgrain
