Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge - 13

With all the organizing and getting ready for the Bingo game, which starts on Tuesday, I haven't done much stamping for fun. Today I had some time so I created this card for the challenge at Fresh & Fun. I really like this layout and may use it for my Christmas cards this year. During my 'blurfing' this afternoon, I saw this colour combination at Stamp Till You Cramp and thought it was a great combo. Thanks, Shannon! For the purpose of my card, it definitely falls into the category of non-traditional Christmas colours, however, not only did I like the colour combo, I wanted to use my new stamp set from TAC known as Snowy Swirls. It just proves that just because you love two different things, they may not always work well together! I decided THAT half-way through the project and was too lazy and too cheap to cut up more of my precious cardstock! No matter, I'm going to submit it at Beate's blog so maybe I can win a prize.

See you soon.

Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Blue Bayou
Stamps: Snowy Swirls - TAC
Ink: Blue Bayou
Accessories: Blue Bayou DS ribbon, silver brads
