Bright Colors for 'Tis The Season

I'd like to thank the wonderful crafters who played along with our very first challenge over at 'Tis The Season! I love Christmas cards and I just adore seeing what people come up with so again, thank you!

This week we have a color challenge for you...Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz, with the option of using glitter. I wont lie, I am very traditional when it comes to Christmas colors so this was a tough one for me.

I finally decided to use Tempting Turquoise as my main card base and then created a layered section with Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo. I embossed with Melon Mambo layer with the Stylish Stripes EF that can be found in the holiday catalog. For my image I grabbed the retired set Wonderful Winterland, I just love the sweet stamps in this set! To color in the figures I used the colors from the challenge and also added a few neutrals for some of the smaller details.

For the glitter I used Tempting Turquoise brads and also added some Dazzling Details under the images, like they were sitting on snow.

I sure hope you'll come
