A Color Challenge with MPS

Hello and thank you for stopping by today. It is a super Saturday. My daughter went to a pool party to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation and the boys went to Gander Mountain to do "man stuff". I am home crafting (with a little cleaning in between) and enjoying my time.

As I was browsing last night, I came across a new color challenge at My Pink Stamper. I pulled various sheets of paper in orange, green, and turquoise,  so I could participate. This morning I began mixing and matching until I came up with these two cards.


  • I used the Serenade cartridge for both cards. The vase and birdhouse were each cut at 3".
  • The orange paper is BoBunny, the green paper is "Harp" by Prima Marketing, and the turquoise paper is from Target's dollar bin.
  • Various embellishments include: ribbon, buttons, craft thread, and gems.
Thank you again for stopping by today. I hope you will come back again real soon. I have another challenge that I am interested in entering and would love for you to see that one too. Paper Cutz is doing a color challenge. Those colors are black, white, and pink. Those three colors always look amazing together.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana : )
