CCMC177 - Color Challenge
Well I am very excited to share this card challenge with your this morning! I really enjoy the challenges at create with Connie and Mary and this week was no exception! The challenge was to use the colors Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade and River Rock. I had the TOUGHEST time when I first sat down to try this! I came up with a few cards, but ended up incorporating a different third color so I put it down and went to work on something else. As I was working it dawned on me one of my favorite memories of Christmas as a kiddo was waking up to the beautiful tree with all the gifts wrapped in different papers. It was an "Ah Ha!" moment so I punched a few pieces of Night of Navy DP with square punch, did the same with River Rock but ran them through the Big Shot on three of my favorite embossing folders (Petals a Plenty, Snowflakes and Vintage Wallpaper. I then "wrapped" the Navy presents with white Bakers Twine and made bows for the River Rock presents! I used the fir tree from Lovely as a Tree multiple times to get the look of a partial Christmas tree and "hung" a Christmas decoration on the wall using more Navy DP and the Very Merry sentiment from Short and Sweet. Finally everything was layered on a piece of Lucky Limeade. I am very happy with the results! Hope you are enjoying your Christmas crafting!
