GHWI Color Challenge LO

I wanted to share my second Get Hippity with Ippity inspiration project.  The challenge this month is two-fold.  First, the mandatory, a color challenge.  The second, an optional, a wedding/anniversary/engagement theme.  These are the colors and they're GORGEOUS.

Unlike my first project, I didn't go with the optional theme this time.  Instead, I did a scrapbook page just as a reminder that projects don't need to be cards.  

I used a Studio Calico sketch for the design.  It's not my usual style but it intrigued me so I thought I'd give it a whirl.  I'm planning to do a 2nd page to go with this one- it feels some what empty and unbalanced to me the way it is but I need to figure out the design first because I'd like to include quite a few more pix on it.  

Once more, I used one of my favorite ippity sets- The Best.  The banner stamps worked perfectly with the sketch I used- could have almost been made for it! 
Please join us and give this challenge a try.  A random winner will be able to select any ippity set they'd like from Aletha Williams.  Entering the challenge gets you one entry, using an ippity or Unity stamp gets you another.  We'd love to see your work!
