A little Color Throwdown with some 411!

I think my MoJo has run off and hid somewhere... It could be because my desk is a mess, I really need to sit down and clean it up! I sat down tonight and wanted to play with stamping 411 before the deadline and I love the colors in today's Color Throwdown so I mixed them up!

I busted out a Christmas set for this card.. This is an Australian Stampin' Up! set called Happy Christmas Mate. I love the images in this set.. Besides the Kangaroo there is a Koala and a Surfin' Santa.

My card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of Pool Party and the matching DSP. I stamped my Kangaroo image onto Whisper White and I colored in it with the Colors from the Challenge... Lucky Limeade, Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink & Pool Party. I used my Blender Pen and the Markers scribbled onto a Clear Block.

I wanted to put a shaped image in the corner like the sketch. I was thinking snowflake but that wouldn't of fit with the image so I thought Jingle Bell since he has some on his hate and shoe in the image. I used a Circle punched from Lucky Limeade and an oval punch to get that small piece. I drew in the bottom part with a marker. Then I added a Pretty in Pink Scalloped Border. I just stamped my sentiment in Black onto the main panel.

Is anyone else feeling winter yet? This morning my car doors were froze shut a bit and  I had to scrap ice off the windshield.. I didn't think we'd be getting it this fast. But I like it, cooler weather is always my Fav!
