Thursday! Again?!? I'm really NOT ready for it to be Thanksgiving already next week, but the calendar just keeps on ticking days by! Guess I better get ready!! I have sort of switched away from Fall mode on the stamping this week, into Holiday (Christmas) mode. Julie helped with that by giving us the colors of the Candy Cane Christmas DSP for the Color Lab Challenge this week!

Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride & Real Red

I won't tell you that this paper & the coordinating stamp set, A Cute Christmas have been hanging out in my stamp room unused since my preorder arrived :). Guess it was finally time to brush the dust off and break them in!! Here is what I came up with:

I think this is the first time I've had the DSP that Julie has used for our challenge. I'm not sure this set is really "me", but I'm pretty happy with what I came up with! Card base is Real Red, background is Baja Breeze snowflake print DSP. In the center is the snowman image from Cute Christmas, stamped in Black Stazon and colored in with markers. Behind him are snowflakes in three colors, Garden Green, Baja Breeze & Blushing Bride. The snowflakes were cut with the Northern Frost Strip die in the Big Shot. Behind the snowflakes, for accent, is several pieces of the Clear Tinsel Trim. LOVE that stuff! One more snowflake at the bottom of the card behind the "have a cute Christmas" saying. The saying was stamped in Real Red and punched with the new 3/4' x 15/16' Oval Punch. Mini glue dots & dimensionals hold the flakes & images on the card front.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you'll stop by the ColorLab and play along!! We LOVE to see what you come up with!!

I love what you did with this! This set isn't "me" either but your card really shows its appeal. Love the tinsel!
