Did the title fool you? Does this sound like a typical Valentine's Day gift? Well not this time, this is actually the name of the challenge this week with Christmas Stampin' All Year Long!! That's right, it's a color challenge and we want to see you create with shades of browns and pinks. This just happens to be one of my favorite color combos and I'm sure this applies to most of you too.
When in doubt, I always say you can't go wrong with pink! LOL!
I just love my CC Designs stamps and so I colored an image from the Christmas 2009 set which you can get from All That Scraps. She just happens to be one of my favorites from this collection. The colors I used for my card are colors from Stampin' Up: pretty in pink, pink pirouette, regal rose and close to cocoa. I used my snowflake embossing folder from cuttlebug for the background, spellbinders for the circle and jagged edge circle.
I also used my Martha Stewart snowflake punches and added some white flowersoft to the pompom on her hat and snow where she is sitting. There were such beautiful cards made with the paper piecing challenge last week and I hope that you will be joining us again this week for this color challenge!! Don't forget, that should you participate you could be the next guest designer on the Christmas Stampin' blog!! Be sure to stop by the blog to see the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT. Happy Aloha Friday!!
