Merry Monday #269 - Colors!

Hi all - Yikes - only 2 weeks till Christmas! But there's still time to crank out those last few Christmas cards or get ahead on next year's stash. This week at Merry Monday, Debbie hosts Challenge #269 - a fun color challenge! Just choose three of the six colors shown in the inspiration photo below:


I leaned toward the combo of green, chartreuse & pink and liked how this turned out in real life, even though the photo is a bit wonky due to the glitter paper. Some day I'll have to figure out how to photograph it!

Supplies: Paper - DCWV Ms Sparkle green A2 card, Paper Studio glitter paper; Michael's green and pink
Stamps - Hero Arts CM100 Christmas Messages; retired cling music stamp
Dies - Spellbinders S5-218 Divine Eloquence & S4-433 Holiday (retired)
Other - Hero Arts snowflake gem; Michaels gems; Twisted Citron & Lucky Clover Distress Inks

I decided to show some love to a couple Spellbinders dies, cutting the base layer from green glitter and the label layer from plain chartreuse cardstock stamped with a fun holiday music background (couldn't find the name of it - long retired by Hero Arts). My pink snowflake looked a little plain so I jazzed it up with a Hero Arts snowflake gem, replacing the center clear crystal with a pink one. Stamped the JOY sentiment - done!

Please be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the Merry Monday Design Team and I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week! Remember, you need crafty time amid all the rushing around to prepare for the holidays!! Thanks for stopping!
