SCCC33 -- Christmas Colour Challenge

Well, it certainly didn't take long for the new Christmas Card Challenge to come along, but that's what happens when you do the first one so late in the game.  This one is a Colour Challenge

They're really pretty colours together but it took me a few minutes to think what I might have that is current Stampin' Up! product and will look good in these colours.  When I thought about For the Birds I knew it would work out.  Especially since I could use some of my Blendabilities again.

I decided to colour the bird grey because that way his hat and scarf could have the brighter colours.  I also decided to use the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the pom-pom and the clear Dazzling Details for the centre band around the ornament.  

To give the card more interest since my image is so small, I decided to use my Decorative Labels framelits to cut out the Whisper White stamped piece, the next layer of Cherry Cobbler and the final layer of Basic Grey.  I also used embossing folders on the coloured layers.  The base cardstock of Smoky Slate looked so drab against all the embossing and colour so I decided to stamp it randomly with my Silver Encore ink using a snowflake stamp from the still-available Festive Flurry stamp set.

Finally I added some stars punched from the Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper.

To see more card in this challenge, check out the Christmas Card Challenge.

I also entered the Inky Chicks Challenge #33--Christmas in July.
