It's day 12, challenge card 12, and card 13. Today I put together 2 challenges that some would think just do not go together. But I'm doing it any ways. I'm playing along with the gang over at ColourQ and are you ready Merry Monday. I started out with just colour Q. The color combo is awesome. So I thought another Valentine card. Then I remember a friend remarking on my pink, purple, and gold Christmas decorations and I thought why not. There is more to Christmas than just red and green. So here we go, The Challenges
First I want to thank the gals over at Colour Q for choosing my card in challenge #17. I get to add another badge, Colour Queen Courtiers. Yeah! I'm so glad you liked my card. Also I need to make a correction in my note for challenge 18. I said Colour Q is a Stampin Up only Blog. That is wrong you can use any supplies you have, they just want you to stay as close to the challenge as possible. I'm sorry ladies.
On to the second part of my card.
I sat these colors in front of me and thought no way. Ah! It went together real easy. I pulled out one stamp set and bam there it is.
I had to use Basic Grey instead of Going Grey.
The card base is Pumpkin Pie and I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder for texture. My Pretty in Pink strip is stamped in basic Grey and Melon Mambo and it is also embossed with the same folder. The stamp sets I used were Delightful Decoration and Four the Holidays. I punched the ornaments out using the ornament punch and I used the scallop border punch for my Basic Grey edge. Then I added some gems and bows to the ornaments.
So there you go. An usual color combo for Christmas. I hope you like my card and I'll see you tomorrow.
