Happy Thursday, friends! Can you believe it's December 8th--yikes! So much left to do before Christmas. But you didn't come here to hear me whine...you came here for some eye candy, didn't you?! It's color challenge week at Create with Connie & Mary...take a look:
Isn't this a fun take on the traditional red and green? I love Basic Grey with anything! I also used this fabulous sketch from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:
and was inspired to ink up an old favorite Christmas set, Delightful Decorations:
I flipped the sketch to the left-hand side, somehow it just worked better for me that way. The Basic Grey base was layered with some Lucky Limeade designer paper from the In Color patterns stack as well as a fun Poppy Parade pattern that looks like snowflakes. I wrapped the panel with some yummy Basic Grey satin ribbon and added a big bow with a a glue dot.
The ornaments were clear embossed in the challenge colors on Whisper White and layered atop a big beautiful Silver Glimmer circle--isn't it lovely?Here's a close-up of a little background stamping I did with the Creative Elements set--doesn't it coordinate nicely with the limeade pattern? I hesitated to buy this set but I really like how versatile each piece is--they really do add a little bit of a creative element to any project. Sorry, couldn't help myself!
So there you have it, folks! I hope you like today's card and that it inspires you to play along with these fun colors. Be sure to check out all the rest of the inspiring creations from the Create with Connie & Mary Design Team. If you decide to play along, please link up your crafty goodness by Wednesday, December 14th at noon (EST). I hope you'll play along with us! Thanks for visiting today!
