This Ink-A-Palooza Color Challenge is hosted by “The Queen of GREEN”! :)

**Updated to ADD: I've just put all 19 names in a basket and drawn the random winner of the Stampin Up set...drum roll please....DEBORAH MARCH!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I will be sending this set to you this week! ENJOY!!! And THANK U to everyone who participated!!

For this challenge you will create a hand-stamped card using the colors GREEN, PINK & BROWN. For those of you who like to think in terms of Stampin’ Up colors…think Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Close to Cocoa! But, any shade of green, pink and brown will be acceptable. You may use designer paper, but it must have only shades of these colors.

Please post your challenge card in the Creative Team, Special Events Gallery and begin the title with IAP4. Once you’ve done that, please come back here and post a link on this thread so you will be included in my random PRIZE drawing for a brand new Stampin’ Up set ~ Best Kind of Friend! (see attached photo)

For an extra chance in the drawing, please visit my blog "Stamping with Serendipity" (http://smileycollector.blogspot.com/2009/04/ink-palooza-color-challenge.html) and leave a comment with the link to your card there also.

HAVE FUN!!! :)

This is such a FUN card and it made me SMILE! I love GREEN too and the nickname "Queen of Green" came from Loobylou because she noticed I was using green a LOT in my cardmaking. In fact, you should see my ribbon shelf...it's mostly GREEN! :) Thanks for joining my challenge...you're in the drawing for the new Stampin Up set! :)

I'm addicted to distress inks lately, so I decided to make them the colors of your challenge. The ones I used are shabby shutters, tattered rose, and frayed burlap. Thanks so much for a fun challenge, Pam. Here is my entry. (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22142)
