I am back! Where did I go? Nowhere, I have just been totally wiped out by scrap booking. When I do a layout it takes me at least 4 hours, and I have been trying to get the wedding album done I've been working on. Anyway, I am so excited that Kristina is back from convention and started up her color inspiration challenges again. For this challenge we were to use black, pumpkin, rose red, and summer sun OR green galore.
I went with green galore because I don't think I have ever used this color and if I used the green then it would be more boy colors. I needed a little boy's card because my little nephew is having a birthday in a couple weeks! Yeah! It still looks kind of girly with the pink in it, but like Kristina said in one of her earlier posts,"After all, a girl (me) is making the card, right?" Anyway, this is what I came up with for the challenge. It was a lot of fun.
