Today I'm joining the Color Throwdown blog for challenge #716
Here is the inspiration photo and colors: Plum, Sage & Blush
Also entering for NBUS#43
Here is the card that I created for this challenge. - I really liked the soft colors but could not seem to locate any designer paper in those colors so I decided to stick to using only card stock in those colors.
Next up I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo ink and used colored pencils to color the image. I added some glitter to the star and used a gel pen for the little pink ornaments on the tree.
I cut the image out using SU Stylish dies and Circle Nestabilite Dies.
The pink circle was cut from SU Blushing Bride card stock.
Next up I stamped the sentiment from my new SU stamp set: Brightest Glow with the Tuxedo black ink and used another of the Stylish dies. I mounted the sentiment and the image with foam tape and added 3 light blush pink dots to complete my card.
So now I have my very first Christmas card of the season made. I'd best get busy though as the holiday season is upon us now and time goes by quickly!
