Scraplings & Paint Chips...

Here is the set of Scraplings...




Individual Scraplings ...

Hello everyone... I have a new creation and this one is a first for me. I went to Gingersnap Creations and there is a challenge to make a set of cards using Paint Chips and Scraplings. Well, I had no idea what a scrapling or paint chips were so I googled them and found out that a scrapling is a tiny card that can be used as a gift tag or whateva. The paint chips are the cute little color swatches that you find in a paint store. Wow, what an interesting tecnique! Since the colors are monochromatic my creation qualified for the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. Here are all the challenges that this creation is entered in: 
Gingersnap Creations ... Theme is "Paint Chips & Scraplings"
Cute Card Thursday Challenge ... Theme is "Whateva"
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge ... "Anything Goes Theme"
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge ... "Momchromatic Theme "
Sentimental Sunday's Challenge ... Theme is "New Technique or Style"

I used white cardstock as my base, paint chips that I made in Adobe Photoshop (since I didn't have any paint chips at the moment), a stamp by Susan Branch, prima flowers, brads and a leaf punch. So what do you think?
