Kristina's Color Inspiration #35: Winter Post


Happy Saturday! What a crazy week with more craziness ahead!, but I wanted to get a quick post up for the weekend! I didn't get a chance to play in Kristina's Color Inspiration #35 before the deadline Thursday, but I love these colors so much, I still wanted to give it a try!

Don't you love the yummy combo: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla! (Oops! Just realized I used white instead of vanilla, drats!) This may be the *simplest* card of all times, even for me, but I made it in about 15 minutes with scraps! I found the over-sized card already made up in my Earth Elements bin, and the scallop circle made from the Pennant Bigz XL Die and Big Shot was a reject from last weekend, because one scallop got chopped off...hence, the strategic placement of the felt flurry snowflake! lol!

I will be challenging myself to create things with limited supplies in the next few days (but I will be making a stop at Archiver's, yay!) so hopefully I'll have more to post soon, because right now, I got nothing! After weeks of making Christmas items, I think I'm ready to branch out! lol! Have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

So perfectly simple.. I totally love it!

I also just found the ribbon that didn't make it in the package.. I will take it of the spool so I don't have to get to the post office we have so much snow. Then it will get on it's way faster . So sorry...

Merry Christmas
Brooke

I love the long tall card Angie! I hate it when I cut off one of the scallops- you're clever to reuse by covering it up.

Juanita said...

This is fabulous. If you had made the deadline, you would be in her top ten for sure!

Hi Angie, Merry Christmas!
This card would've have been a Top 10 pick for SURE! I saw it last night, and knew I had to comment. Seriously...GORGEOUS!
