Gingersnap Creations Three Colors You Love Challenge

 
Well, I fiddled with this one for waaaaay longer than I expected, LOL!!  The latest color challenge from Gingersnap Creations is to use Three Colors You Love.  Aaaah, I love all of them!  In fact, I think I can become easily overloaded by color - perhaps my brain becomes overstimulated - which  probably explains why most of my decor is creams and linens, with dark brown woods.  But I am decidedly partial to robin's egg blue, dusty purple, and blush pink.  I knew I wanted to make a collage-style card, using scraps of paper and some stamped images that I already had floating around in my "too-pretty-to-throw-away-but-not-gonna-use-it-right-now" box.  Perhaps that's what got me into trouble.  Anyway, here's my card for this challenge, using stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms, Martha Stewart, Inkadinkado, Stampin' Up!, Stampington.... pretty much anyone who sells stamps, LOL!  

This ultimately was quite fun... if you'd like to play with color today, you can head on over to Gingersnap Creations for some inspiration and a peek at the blog candy from The Artistic Stamper.  It could be yours, just for playing with colors you love :).
