I have a problem...

I'm seriously addicted to Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenges. From the moment I see her post, I'm planning my card in my head and thinking about it constantly until I get the time to stamp and make it. I'm obsessed!!

But it's a healthy addiction, right!? Stamping makes me happy. And participating in a stamping challenge is fun! I really think it helps me "stretch" creatively and try new things. So here's my latest color challenge card. It was in my head for a whole 30 minutes, until I could manage to get Elise down for a little nap and the kids entertained with a computer game while I set to work...what a great way to start the day!

Supplies: Embrace Life stamp set, Love & Happiness Rub-Ons, Manchester DSP, Sahara Sand cardstock, Old Olive ink & cardstock, Certainly Celery marker & cardstock, Earth Elements Buttons, Cutter Kit (Edge Distresser Tool)
