Hip Hip Hooray for SplitCoast Colour Challenges!

I've been trying to use my neglected stamps. This little duo is one of those--never used it before. You just gotta love their little faces! I was at a loss for what colours to use though, and so I was happy to find the colour challenge called for an awesome mix: Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, & Certain Celery.

Card Details: I've embossed & layered a lot. The embossing is done with craft inks (tone on tone) and clear e.p. in th "Paisley Print" background (retired SU) & a mystery paisley stamp [ETA: my favourite paisley stamp finally has a source: above the mark stamps.] The squirrelly critters & sentiment are from Hip Hip Hooray & are embossed with Chocolate Chip Craft ink & clear e.p. I've coloured them with water-colour pencil crayons (how I love them!) and then went over that with my aqua painter. SUPER easy. The ribbon is retired SU too (Must use hoard!--my new mantra) ;0). The Basic Grey is textured and measures 6x6 inches.

Thanks so much for taking the time,
