How's this for an odd bunch of colors??  I really wanted to got with a very shabby/vintage mix, and this was definitely just that!  I just got this new (delish) Victoria Collection paper from 7Gypsies, and it just fit perfectly for what I wanted to do!  I colored in my funky little lamp from Ageless Antiques using Copic Markers, and I paper-pieced the shade  and added it to my image using dimensionals, so it really pops, and looks adorable if I do say so myself!  Love this fun color combo, and I think it's perfect for a fun square card!!

I hope you have some time to play along!!  I will be stamping my little heart out today, and I hope you do too!!

Happy snow day!!
