Hello again stampin' peeps!
Today I've got a card for the new Photo Inspired Color Challenge over at Some Odd Girl. The pic is up over on the SOG blog and it features a beautiful combination of pinks, lime greens and aquas all in a cool looking non-traditional Christmas wreath. Now you don't have to make a Christmas card with it but sometimes it can be fun to go a bit crazy and shake up the traditional red and green. ;)
I decided to ink up the newest Oddie, Holly Day Gwen because I love her party like flair and she's just such a little beauty. And while the papers I chose to work with aren't really Christmas prints I think that by pairing them with all that snowy white they work as a fun and flirty Christmas card. The ornaments were kind of a happy accident... I ordered these 'raspberry beads' from Maya Road and when I got them they were much bigger and bulkier than I had expected them to be. I didn't even think that I'd be able to use them on anything. But as I was fiddling with them I noticed that I could pry them in half and use glue dots to attach them. This way they reminded me of fancy ornaments and even if they make it so I have to send this card in a bubble mailer I'm cool with it... getting the perfect look and putting them to use is totally worth it.
Alrighty, time for you to get inspired and colorful and show us your take on the challenge! You've got until October 4th to enter a card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do. :)
Have fun and good luck!
