Christmas Card Challenges #11

This week at Christmas Card Challenges we have a Color Challenge for you.  I love when we get to use non-traditional colors for a Christmas card.

For my card, I used a Basic Black card base.  On the inside of the card I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set in Basic Gray ink.  The layer on the front of the card is Whisper White.  I inked up the inside of the Chicken Wire Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions with Smoky Slate ink and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The Melon Mambo word Joy is cut using the die from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.  I added a few pink rhinestones inside the wire to give it a wee bit of bling.


For all the challenge details and to share your project, visit Christmas Card Challenges.  We'd love to see how you were inspired by the Color Challenge.
