A Quick Challenge Post...

Hi! I wanted to work with the colors from Kristina Werner's color inspiration this week since they looked so great together! Here is the inspiration:



I loved the colors but I had the hardest time coming up with an idea for a card with them! I ended up doing a Christmas card... Here it is:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

Stamps: Snow Swirled set, Heard From the Heart set
Ink: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Rose Red, and Basic Black Classic Stampin' Inks; Versamark
Paper: Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Whisper White, and Wild Wasabi card stock; So Saffron DSP (last years...)
Other: White embossing powder, blue ribbon by Lasting Impressions, green ribbon by Creative Imaginations

I heat embossed the tree on the Wasabi paper first and matted. Then I created a background paper with the snowflake stamps and different colored inks. I chose the So Saffron DSP last, added my sentiment and ribbons and voila! Pretty easy holiday card, right!

Anyways, Kristina always puts up the best color challenges! They are by far my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by today!
