Merry Christmas Colour Challenge

Good morning and welcome to another beautiful, but cold, autumn day in Southwestern Ontario. The days are getting shorter and Christmas is coming - eeeekk!!

I've started my Christmas cards as you have probably noticed and I was so thrilled to see today's colour challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Use a neutral card base with a pop of colour - easy peasy!

My sentiment is from the beautiful Waltzingmouse Stamp Set, Say it with Style, which has a gorgeous font and I love to use it - so many sentiments to choose from!

There are sneak peaks for new releases going around right now at Waltzingmouse Stamps- I haven't received my sets yet - *shaking fist at Canada Post* - but there are gorgeous samples on the design teams blogs and on the
Waltzingmouse Stamps blog itself - take a peek at the mysterious new stamp set that will require a secret password to view - heehee!!

For my card, I chose to use Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream cardstock for my neutral and then combined Pure Poppy that was punched with my apron lace punch - easy and effective.

My Mind's Eye Merry Days of Christmas designer paper was used for the front of the card - perfect match!

My snowflakes are Little Yellow Bicycle chipboard which I inked up with Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream ink and then Martha Stewart chunky glitter on top
- gorgeous and sparkly! Love it!

I added Stamping Bella baubles - which I have been hoarding but NO MORE! I am now in USE mode so everything is going to be getting used up - so if anyone is feeling generous....haha!!

I finished off my card by running the vintage cream ink around the edges to bring it all together!

Have a wonderful sunny day - I think I am going to try to hang clothes out on the line
