Just for fun! Little Paper Shop color challenge!

The Little Paper Shop blog has a color challenge this week and I found a little time to do some "just for fun" stamping so I thought I would play along. The color challenge for this week is Red Riding Hood, Chocolate Chip and Kraft. I have to be honest, I probably wouldn't have put these colors together myself (because I never think to use Kraft) but I LOVE them together. This definitely won't be the last time you see me use these colors together! Since it is a LPS challenge I decided to use my absolute favorite set from LPS: {A Dream}. For my card I also used a LPS sketch challenge that they posted a couple months ago. I really liked this sketch the first time I used it so I thought I would try it again. The larger Prima is painted with the newly released Fire Engine Red Shimmerz.
Supplies used: A Dream stamp set from LPS, SU CS and DP, Joann's ribbon, Fire Engine Red Shimmerz, Prima flowers, American Crafts brads, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Coluzzle circle template.

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I have another DRS Designs sneak peak plus some very fun blog hop info to share! I hope you are all having a great week!

This really is a great color combo; I don't use kraft nearly enough, either! You've done a wonderful job with it -- great sketch, fun texture, and beatiful shimmer!
