Color Challenge 247



Good morning!! It's a cool crisp morning here in Central Texas...the perfect morning to stay in my warm pj's and curl up in front of the computer!!! My friend, Bev (TexasGrammy) and I made our reservations for CHA last night so watch out So Cal...here we come!!!! I can't wait to go and meet my wonderful stamping friends!!!


Speaking of friends....my friend, Betty (gbedwright), asked me to make a sample card for the color challenge today...Thanks, Betty!! The colors today are Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Soft Suede. You can use Close to Cocoa if you don't have the Soft Suede.
Betty also has a dessert option...bling!! You can use any kind of sparklie in any color...the icing on the cake!!!


The Festive Frame image designed by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs was stamped on Soft Suede with Versamark and embossed with gold ep. The poinsettias were each stamped 3 times on vanilla, embossed with gold ep, cutout, layered, dusted with glitter, and glammed up with red Swarovski Crystals. The center was cut out of the frame and mounted on the BoBunny dp. The sentiment from the same set was stamped on the dp with Soft Suede. Red Stickles was applied around the outer edges and inner oval of the frame and Martha Stewart gold stickers finish it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Festive Frame
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, BoBunny dp
Ink: Soft Suede, Versamark
Accessories: Red Stickles, Gold ep, Glitter, Swarovski Crystals, Martha Stewart Stickers, Foam Tape


Thanks for stopping by today....I hope you day is super special!!!!
