Festive Friday Color Challenge

Pink for a Christmas card.  Now that is one I would never have thought of on my own.  I suppose that's because blue is my favorite color so I tend to go down that 'blue' road when I'm thinking of colors.  There are many times when I have to talk myself into using other colors.  I think that is why I love all the challenges I've been participating in lately.  They are definitely getting me off that 'blue' road.

The current challenge for Festive Friday is a color challenge and all you have to be sure to do is use the colors of pink, white and silver.  It actually turns out to be a great combination.  You can find all the details about the challenge by clicking HERE or on the image below.

Here is the very bright and sparkly card I made for the challenge.

Stamp Set:  Cowboy Christmas (Flourishes); Ink:  Melon Mambo (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Classic White (Flourishes), Secret Love Patterned Paper, Silver Glitter Paper (American Crafts); Accessories & Tools:  Decorative Label Punch, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Ice Cream Parlor Button (all Stampin' Up!), Pink & White Twine (American Crafts), White Doily (Bo Bunny)

The sparkle of the silver glitter paper doesn't show up well in the picture but it is very glittery in person.

Until next time. . . happy creating!


  1. Now that's the way to add some sparkle to the season. Terrific card Marsha! Love the way you combined the buttons and the twine makes me think of Christmas candy. Yum.

  2. Oh, how pretty! I love the brighter and lighter pinks together! So festive with those glittery stripes! Thanks for playing with us at Festive Friday!
