"The one where I used more than ONE color..."

Hang on to your seats!  I actually tried to use an acutal Color combo on this one!  I know I was really reaching right?  LOL!  So many people have used the Pure Poppy/Hawiian Shores combo and I just love it!  So I added in a little yellow just so I could say I used 3 colors!


One fun little tip for today!  If you center the Argyle stamp on your A2 card base, you have 1/2" left on each side!  If you own a Scor-Pal you can line up your card and score at 1/2" and its a perfect border for this background stamp!


You will have to let me know what you think!  Thanks for looking!
