ColorLab22

Thursday! And, OOOHHH so CLOSE to Christmas!! Today will be my busy day to grocery shop, cook and clean. Working a little on Friday, then more of cooking or cleaning as needed before Christmas on Saturday. Can't wait!! On to your reason for stopping by, the ColorLab Color Challenge of the week. Julie picked a great one this week (doesn't she always?!!!??) to go along with the season:


Night of Navy, Pacific Point,
Baja Breeze & Marina Mist


I will admit, at first glance I wasn't sure all these blues would work, but I love them all together!! My card base is Night of Navy, with a background layer of Whisper White that I stamped with snowflakes from the Snow Swirled set in all 4 of the colors. I started with the medium snowflake and pretty much covered the background, doing about 4 in each color. Then I grabbed the little snowflake and filled in any bare areas. I sponged the edge of the Whisper White with Night of Navy. I cut a big snowflake with the Snowflake #2 die in my Big Shot from Marina Mist. To the center I added a Marina Mist Glitter Brad from the Subtles set. I sponged the outer edge of the snowflake with some Night of Navy just to give it a little more contrast to the background. I attached the snowflake to the card, near the top but centered. Next came a Night of Navy Satin ribbon knotted on the left side. Lastly, the 'Merry Christmas' saying from the All Holidays set on scallop ovals.

Merry Christmas to you all if you don't make it back before Saturday. I will have a Sketch Frenzy Friday post tomorrow, and hope to post my Christmas card on Saturday. I finally got 101 of the cards "postal" on Wednesday (the latest EVER!). Thanks for stopping by, please stop over at the ColorLab and see what the other girls came up with-you won't be sorry you took the time! Then, take a break and play along with us!!
