TJ Blogstravaganza/Blogger Color Challange

After teaching one of my Christmas Card classes tonite (I'm writing this post late and setting scheduling it to post for me), I sat down to create this weeks Bloggers Challenge - not having a TJ Blogstravganza post ready, I wanted to combine both into one post.

I sat for awhile, looking at the color combo (Close to Cocoa, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue, with white or vanilla)- thinking aloud...I bet the Bloggers Challenge Players are probably wondering "what in the heck was she thinking here". The more I looked at the colors, the more I really liked them - then I checked my mail - and I think they did too - as I saw quite of few of them posted - be sure to check them out, they're a talented bunch!

Not your typical colors for a Holiday Card, but I like them! If the sketch looks familiar - it's the same one I used in yesterday's post from SC205.

If you'd like to play along, just leave a link to your post here, or if uploading to SCS use keyword BC76, so I can find your creation!

Happy Friday!

Details:
Stamps - Snow Burst, Holiday Lineup
Ink - Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss
Card Stock - Bashful Blue, Vanilla, Close to Cocoa
Other - Aquapainter, Sponge Dauber, Bashful Blue Stitched Grosgrain
Tech - Triple Dimension for a past issue of TJNL.

It was a fun color challenge, especially with the Frosty Day DSP having those colors! Love the snowflakes done in the non-traditional colors...great job!

Lynn Mercurio said...

Oh this is so flippin' cute! I always think I have to use the entire stretch of this image, but look what you've done...how very clever. Fantastic job.

How cute! - Love the snowflakes you made in the colors and the way you did your bow is wonderful. I thought for sure you'd use the Frosty DP as that's where I figured you got the colors from but you didn't and yet your card is perfect.
