'Tis the Season, a Color Challenge, #51

I just loved trying to decide what to make using these colors!  I immediately thought of a million cool snowflake cards, but I wanted to challenge myself a bit this time, exercise the big muscle inside my skull.

I used this OLD set.  I fell in love with the straight lines of gifts.  WARNING: this set is color heavy, but the little girl in me wanted to color today.

Head over to 'Tis the Season, check out the beautiful cards of the design team and play along!

'Tis the Season, A Photo Inspired Challenge

I went clean and simple with this challenge number 50 on 'Tis the Season Christmas card challenge.

I will say that I always have the hardest time with the the photo challenges.  I embossed the pine branches with emerald embossing powder.  Then I embossed the ornament with Cherry Cobbler and a gold embossing powder.  I cut that out so that no white paper showed on the edge.  I sponged the edges in Cherry Cobbler.  I popped that up (although it is impossible to tell from this picture).  I used large and small rhinestones to imitate the colored lights that are shining from the tree.

You should give it a shot... Head over to 'Tis the Season and play along! Here's the photo to inspire your work.  Make sure you post your creation to 'Tis the Season so we get to see what you came up with.
