I decided to play the Color Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today. Betty selected Stampin' Up's Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, and Soft Suede as the colors of choice! As an extra added bonus, she suggested we throw in some stripes so I did! I also am feeling a little anxious for spring so I took Kitchen Sink's Winter Cardinals and replaced the pine with a branch sprouting new spring leaves!
