Blogger's Challenge

Well, it's Friday and yep...I'm just getting my Blogger's Challenge card in right under the wire! :) I've had this idea in my head all week, but just got a chance today to actually make the card.

This week, our challenge was to use any layout/stamps/ink/card stock and create a Christmas Themed Card - USING NON TRADITIONAL Christmas colors. I think I may have slightly *cheated* on the non-traditional colors part. I needed a *redish* color for my poinsettia (is that even spelled right??). So, I grabbed my pack of new In Colors and new I wanted to use the Soft Sky and Purely Pomegranate. I also added Chocolate Chip to the mix. I also sponged each layer of card stock with Chocolate Chip ink. I really like how this card turned out and it is easy to reproduce - may just need to use this as my Christmas cards this year (if I start now, so I'm not the week before Christmas without a card made!).

Be sure to check out the other Blogger's who took on this challenge located in the sidebar under Blogger's Challenge Players ------------>

All Supplies SU! unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Doodle This, Baroque Motifs, Sincere Salutations
CS: Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip
Other: Vintage Brads, Stamping Sponge, Mat Pack (for brad placement), Stampin' Dimensionals, Stickles - Silver
