52 Christmas Card Throwdown Color Challenge




Good Morning!  This week's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog challenge is a color challenge.  The colors for this challenge are:  green, brown, gold, and vanilla/cream.  I didn't have any gold card stock so I decided to get out my gold embossing powder and create a gold ornament.

I stamped the ornaments and then they were die cut using the ornament framelits.  The gold and green ornaments have dimensionals beneath them.  My very vanilla card stock layer has some score lines in the background and I did that by using my score board and scoring every few lines.

The designer series paper along the top portion of my card was punched using my scallop border punch and placed onto my card.  Then I tied some of the brown ribbon across the dsp and I added a button with some linen thread tied through it. 

Lastly, I added some small bows on each ornament using linen thread and I placed three pearls in the center of the green ornament.  My sentiment was stamped in the lower left hand corner (inbetween the embossed lines).

I've been a bit behind with my blogging lately and I apologize.  I just finished my card swap and I've been busy getting things ready for my new challenge blog to begin.  I'll be back to blogging regularly again in a few days.  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

The paper with scored lines is so decorative as background, what a great idea! The Christmas baubles are so elegant, and the colors go so well together. Lovely card!
