Over at the Jingle Belles blog this week they are teaming up with the talented June Houck for a color challenge and it involves 2 very popular Christmas colors, red and green. The catch? You can only use 1 of the colors on your card...that's right, either red or green but you cant use both colors on the same card! Now I love red and green so I was a bit scared at first but then I jumped right into it and went with red, brown and kraft for my colors. I added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details around the reindeer's swirls to give the image a little more 'pop'.
I'm so sad though...I've been hoarding this particular SU Christmas DSP since 2010 and I only have a few pieces left, boooo! This is some of my favorite paper ever!
The second challenge is this weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. It's a great sketch from Tui Nathan and I'm squeaking this one in a few hours before the linky closes!
Make sure you check out both blogs and their great challenges!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Deck the Halls DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Burst EF, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, sponge, dimensionals
Very pretty indeed! I love a CAS card and love all the inked edges. Inking the edges is my favorite thing to do especially when a card needs a little extra something. It's so easy to do too. TFSReplyDelete

Beautiful card! Love the papers, the image - the card!!ReplyDelete
Lovely card...I have the same dilemma with my papers. I hoard them because I love them.....but really I suppose I should just use them up and let others enjoy them! Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!ReplyDelete
You can never go wrong with Dasher! Really lovely card! Thanks for playing with Freshly Made Sketches this week!ReplyDelete

I always love that reindeer ... such a great use of the sketch ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.ReplyDelete
I love those papers too, Lisa. SU had a halloween collection 5 or 6 years ago that I never bought and I have regretted it ever since; they have not made a Halloween collection since that I liked as well as that one. I've learned my lesson! Buy it :) I have that elegant reindeer stamp too; your strip of embossed paper behind him accents his elegance. GREAT card, as usual!ReplyDelete
