Winterberry Christmas

Good morning everyone. Oh WOW! Do we have a fantastic colour combination for you over at the Colour Create Challenge today. I LOVED using these colours and I know that a lot of my cards for Christmas this year will feature these colours now. Well, the past two years have been completely non-traditional colours for me, so this year I want to go a bit traditional.

The colours as picked by our fab LIZ are:

RED, GOLD and either WHITE or CREAM (I actually used all 4 colours on this card)

The optional extra is CHRISTMAS or ORIENTAL.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Sketchy Colours - the Sketch
Crafty Catz - Recipe 321, 3 embellishments (snowflakes, gems and ribbon), 2 papers (2 red papers) 1 Image
Sweet Stampin - Winter Wonderland
Crafts and Me - Gems and sparkle (lots of sparkle on the image)
The Creative Cottage - Celebrations
My Time To Craft - Jewelled
Stamping Sisters In Christ - Water (I picked the frozen variety of water in the snowflakes)

Items Used:
Image: Sweet Pea stamp - Winterberry
Snowflake paper - made by heat embossing snowflake stamps in opaque white and pirate gold
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
Stickles - Stardust
Coloured with promarkers

There is a fantastic prize of USD 19.99 for the winner of this Colour Create Challenge and it can be used in Michelle's Scrapbooking store to purchase one of the new Spellbinder's dies or anything else up to that value. Thank you so much for offering that as a prize Michelle.

The amazingly talented DT have created a feast for the eyes using the colour combo so I'd recommend heading over there to take a look.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
