STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - Color Challenge

Hi there - so glad you popped in ....
The STV Center Stage Spotlight Team hop for the month of May is a Color Challenge Blog Hop and the 
color challenge is brought to us by Miesje 
thank you Miesje!

We were to create a card or project with the following color combination:
 a non-Christmas red and green card with a neutral color Black, White or Tan.

If you are hopping ..you should have come from the wonderfully talented blog of Lori McAree

I chose to combine two of GKD's stamp sets

hope you like
I spread a thin coat of Gesso on one side and almost covered up my red pattern designer paper. Didn't mean to have it so thick... and then stamped a background on both sides of my card using images from both stamp sets. (the brown side already had a grid image on it).
 Stamped the birdhouse and flowers on scraps of white and colored them with Copics:
E04, 31, 18...YG63, 67, R85, C2
did some faux stitching and added my pearls with a Vivid Pearl Pen (love that stuff!)

My base cardstock is from GKD - Asparagus...everything else is stash!!!

Hope my mixed media card inspires you to join in our challenge...now your next stop is off to our sweet team mate Kay Simmons

and remember....
Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! 
Look for the announcement on Tuesday, May 28
