You color my world

This is my second post of the day.

Maybe... Just maybe... I may have cracked the Crafter's block problem.

I sure hope so... I have so many projects to get completed here soon.

For this card I combined many challenge.... which is usually a challenge in its self.  

I took the photo inspiration from The Paper Crafter's Corner  Magazine Mondays Challenge

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 119 Inspiration Piece (image)

I was inspired by the book shelves.... The rectangles stacked on top of each other and the separation line of the shelf 
sort of a funny thing to be inspired from  

The colors I choose was from the challenge at The Greeting Farm monthly challenge.
Purple - Orange - Black

And I used the Ombre Challenge for the Simon Says Monday challenge 
to complete the shelf idea I had.

Actually the finished card is not the original plan.   But about the third attempt.

I used paint chips to create the effect of the book shelves and the Ombre help with the separation of the shelves.

The stamped image is one of my favorites from the Greeting Farm.  Her name is Thursday.  I just love the cute Kitty hat.  

Since it was getting dark when I took the photo the row of black/grey paint chips are looking sort of green.... but trust me... they are more black grey.

Well... I think it is time to have an adult beverage and some dinner with the family.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
