Embellish Holiday Color Challenge

Time for another Embellish Color Challenge! Check it out...The Challenge: To create a holiday themed project using the colors pictured above. The Sponsor: My Time Made Easy. Check out their great line-up of stamps and digital files here.

Here is what I came up with using both Dashing Through the Snow and The Gingersnaps...
Started by die cutting a Mat Stack #3 from a Post It Note, to use as a mask. Then placed the die cut Post It Note on the front of a white card base and stamped with light pink text. Using the same pink ink, I inked around the Mat Stack mask and around the card edges. With mask still in place, I stamped red snowflakes and then removed the mask.
Stamped mistletoe in green, cut it out and attached to the top of the Mat Stack opening. Finished the card off with a sentiment from The Gingersnaps, a few buttons and some ribbon.

Now it's your turn to join in the challenge fun! Look here for the challenge details, the Design Teams amazing inspiration and a fabulous prize. Hope to see your challenge creations soon!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great one!
