Giving the Paper Players Color Challenge a whirl this week!

Welcome to Create with Brenda!

I hope you are having a great day.  I am giving a color challenge a try today!  I have never done this before, so I hope I get all the links right 🙂    I am submitting this entry for the Paper Players Color Challenge PP428.  The challenge is to create something using Basic Gray, Melon Mambo and Smokey Slate.  Here is my submission.  What do you think?  I would love to get your feedback.








Here are the Stampin’Up products I used for my project.  They can be purchased HERE
