color challenge #30

another challenge from kristina...

i love these simple colors... two greens, white, and a brown. it is perfect, so clean and elegant!


i have been seeing these cool flowers around, but unfortunately they are no where to be found where i live so i tried making my own. super easy and very cute, although i am sure the real ones are much better.



anyhow... here is my inspiration. i really like simple things and you can't get much more simple than this. can't wait to see everybody's.

supplies:
paper: stampin'up! (whisper white, old olive, certainly celery, & sahara sand)
stamps: papertrey ink (polka dot basics, floral frenzy & 2008 holiday tag collection)
ink: stampin'up! (old olive & certainly celery) versa mark
misc: circle punches, white embossing powder, michael's (ribbon)
