CTD43 Colonial Spring

Colonial Williamsburg is one of my favorite places, so I was super excited when I recently found this stamp at my LSS.  I thought this image would work well with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #43; the color picks this week are Lavender Lace, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant.
I stamped my image on Lavender Lace cardstock and used SU! pastels to color my image.  I didn't want to overwhelm my image so I kept things pretty simple and only added Flower Soft to my card.  Talk about quick and easy!
Hope you like my creation!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
Supplies: Stamp - Colonial Spring by Obsession Impression, Inc.; Paper - SU! Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, generic white base; Ink - Versafine olympia green; Accessories - SU! pastels, Flower Soft, corner rounder and deckle scissors.
