behr hello.




Home Depot anyone?


I may have gathered a handful of behr paint chips.  One day I will paint in my 'design studio'.  If you've been following me for awhile, you may remember that green is my favorite color.


I was inspired by



While it seemed that people focused on the speech bubbles, I don't have any speech bubble dies and it's evidently super hard for me to turn on my cameo.

So what I was inspired by were the stripes of color that reminded me of paint chips.

I kept with the kraft base because kraft + green makes my ♡ happy.  I cased the rounded corner and called it good.

Thanks to everyone that participated in my birthday give-a-way!  Yay for Niki who won the Butterfly Reflections Ink Gift Certificate!  Have fun shopping!!!!

Oh, I love it! Green makes me happy, too, and I soooo love it paired with my favorite, kraft! Love the clean lined design here. That on the edge die is so cool. Really love the simple rounded corner, too. So subtle, but adds a great little detail!

Lindsey said...

Heehee..I had to chuckle when I read this. We're in the process of painting a room in our home, but while we were at the paint store I picked up probably more than my fair share of paint swatches because I loved the colors. I used two on my card yesterday. :)
