I made this card for this week's challenge on the CK/Papercrafts message board. Pene is hosting this week's challenge, which is a color challenge. She chose three random items on her craft table and asked us to take our colors from those objects. There was a bright blue bottle, a red rubber duck and a spool of lime green thread.
For several days this week, I didn't think I was going to be able to do this challenge because nothing was coming to mind that I could do with this combination of colors. When another person posted her card and mentioned that she had to change some things because it looked too much like a Christmas card. So I thought, "hmm - why not make a Christmas card." I found some paper in a DCWV Christmas Stack and there I was.
I received the snowman image and sentiment in an image swap, so I don't know who makes the stamps. I colored the image with my trusty Prismas/mineral spirits then cut out the image and sentiment with my circle Nesties. I inked the edges with French Blue Chalk Ink. I then matted with green and red also cut with the Nesties. I used a couple of border punches to scallop the bottom edge, added some ribbon, a big Prima and some buttons to finish it off.
