Merry Monday Challenge #223!

It's my turn to be the hostess at Merry Monday Challenge this week. I picked a color challenge for all of us to use of Light Blue, Dark Blue &  Pink. If you know me well and have been following my blog for some time, you know that I love to use non-traditional colors for my Christmas cards. Here's proof:

How did I start my card? By using a large sentiment stamped over a watercolored background. I then added all of my layers and elements from there. Although there is no such thing as blue pine branches, in the world of card-making there is and I love how all three of these colors look paired together with all the die-cuts:

I finished my card by adding a dark pink double-bow in the bottom corner and added a few Rhinestone Jewels in the background. I hope you'll play along with my color challenge this week and be sure to visit my teammates at Merry Monday to view their fabulous projects!

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Suite Seasons
  • Inks: Dapper Denim, Pink Pirouette
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky
  • Accessories: Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies
