Papercraft Star Challenge #65

     Color inspirations scare me to death!  LOL  Well, not really, but they certainly make me put my thinking cap on.  I even surprised myself by incorporating three of the colors in my project. WOOHOO! :-)
     For my card I used a Flourish Grunge Square image from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay.

     It provided the background for my image and the blue.  My image is a new one from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Teen Fairy Pia".  She colored with Copics in purple and red.  Three colors!  I guess if you want to count her skin as coral, I got all four.  :-)
     Some of you (like our Kim) have crazy mad skills with color inspirations so we'd love to see what you can dream up. Just get your project linked up by 6:00 a.m. EST on Monday.  You just might win some cool digi sheets from our Papercraft Star sponsor, THATB.
     Happy Wednesday!
