Combo of Colors and Challenges


Annabelle's challenge this week is "Say it in ...pink, green, and kraft."  I decided to make a non-traditional Christmas card with these colors seeing that the Annabelle Blog design team created some lovely holiday cards with this combo.  I don't usually stray far away from traditional colors for Christmas. Using a sketch from Card Patterns, I designed this card with stamps from Annabelle's "Stamped for Christmas" and paper pieced the sled with kraft CS and scraps of pink and green papers. Used a circle die to cut the image and a beaded circle die ( which looks like a scallop circle) for the green mat. I placed this on a Kraft base card and stamped the sentiment in SU Pink Passion. Finished with some ribbons from stash and two wooden flowers with a pearl.
Challenges:
Annabelle Stamp Challenge: Say it in...pink, green, and kraft.
Card Patterns: Sketch 138
Wee Memories: Free for All sponsored by Annabelle Stamps
Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Bingo Challenge-used middle row with Dies/Punches, Flowers and Ribbon. Hope wooden flowers count.
The House That Stamps Built DCC1022: Recipe challenge- 1 image and 1 sentiment, 2 die cuts and 3 embellishments.
 
Glad that you dropped by. I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
