Two Card Wednesday!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Wednesday! That means there are two wonderful color challenges, the Color Dare (card #2) and Color Throwdown (card #1).

My first card is also for today's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. I pulled out a new and an old set for this one: Holiday Blocks which is an old hostess set and Christmas Punch which is a new hostess set!

You can earn the Christmas Punch set for FREE when you host a workshop or place an order of $300 or more! Now is the time to start that Christmas shopping, so check out my online store for all the supplies you need to make those special holiday gifts!

This card is pretty simple... nothing major. I did add a felt flurry under the main sentiment... you can find these on sale for next to NOTHING in the clearance section of my online store! Hurry, it's only while supplies last!

Card Details:
Paper:
Whisper White (#100730), Chocolate Chip (#102128), Kraft (#107070), Ski Slope Designer Paper (retired)

Ink: Chocolate Chip (#100908), Baja Breeze (retired)

Stamps: Christmas Punch (#115366), Holiday Blocks (retired)

Accessories: Silver Brads (#104336), White Satin Ribbon (non-su), Little Felt Flurries (#113697 - on sale!!), Scallop Square Punch (#112081)

My second card is for today's Color Dare to use Crushed Curry, Taken With Teal, Melon Mambo, and Basic Gray! It's a really bright and fun combo!!

I used one of my all-time favorite sets, Live Your Dream for this card. It's been retired for some time, but I keep hoping they will bring it back as it was only featured in a mini catalog a couple of years ago!

  3. Both cards are very pretty Riley. I especially like how you used the center panel as the snowflake behind it. Very clever.
    The darling butterflies on your second card are so cute and great colors.
