Marjorie's Color Challenge #38

Happy Tuesday! :D It's back to work for me today! I was able to stamp a bit yesterday while I was home and worked on a few of Marjorie's Color Challenges that I had missed. For color challenge #38, Marjorie chose the colors Bamboo, Desert Sand, Ponderosa Pine and Juniper. Now Marjorie made a winter card with this color challenge and it was sooo cute! So I decided to get out my All Decked Out stamp set from CTMH and go to work. I do have to admit that when I was putting this card together I wasn't sure I was gonna like it. But now that it's done I have fallen in love with it...these colors came together fabulously!!! :D I have been using alot of snowman stamps lately so I hope you're not tired of them yet! :D

Stamps: All Decked Out, Spot on Backgrounds & Annotations (CTMH) Paper: Bamboo, Desert Sand, Juniper & New England Ivy CS (CTMH) Ink: Juniper, Ponderosa Pine, Desert Sand & Black (CTMH) Accents: Sparkles, Twill Ribbon & Juniper Brads (CTMH), Corner Rounder, Piercer, CB Swiss Dots, Circle Punches & Snowflake Punch (Martha Stewart)

My card base is a 5" x 10" piece of Bamboo CS folded in half. I then cut a 4" piece of Desert Sand CS and used my corner round to make some scallops! I scissor & inked distressed the CS with Desert Sand ink and pierced holes in the scallops. Next I layered a piece of Ponderosa Pine and Juniper CS on top of my Desert Sand CS. I pierced a line on the top and bottom piece of the Ponderosa Pine CS and ran the Juniper CS through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I also inked and scissor distressed both of these pieces. Next I went to work on my snowman! I stamped him in Black ink onto White Daisy CS. I then paper pieced his hat and scarf with some Juniper CS. I added some sparkles to the snowflakes and layered him onto some Ponderosa Pine & Bamboo CS. Before I pop dotted my image to my base I tied a bow of twill ribbon around the card. My image covers up most of the scallops and I was pretty bummed about that, but what are ya' gonna do! :D I added the sentiment "Happy Holidays" and a snowflake and called it done! :D Well thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is fabulous!!! :D
