CSS Blog Hop: Color Challenge

Welcome to another CSS Blog Hop! If you came from Jen's blog you are in the right place and if you didn't you will want to start HERE (at Betty's).  Carolina challenged us to make a project using these colors:

 

Here is what I came up with:

I used the stamp set Gleefully Yours illustrated by Nina Brackett and was inspired by a card I saw in which she stamped the musical score over the piano. LOVE that!  I used Red Hot, Fresh Asparagus, and the yellow patterned paper is from October Afternoon Thrift Shop.  I know you can barely see it, but I stamped a musical Treble and Bass Clefs along the left edge in red on the red cardstock (looks much better in person!)  Next stop on the hop is the uber talented Karen....can't wait to see what she came up with!  


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
