'Tis the Season #25 w/ ColourQ 258!!

It's Thursday and time for another fun challenge at 'Tis the Season.. Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? This challenge is a great way to get a head start each month! This week we have a Sketch challenge for you.

I decided to play along with the Colour Q and go a little non tradition for my colors. 

My card base is Basic Grey (no Going Grey in my stash) and then I added a piece of the Moonlight DSP in Blackberry Bliss. I stamped the snowflakes from Endless Wishes onto a piece of Whisper White using Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, Hello Honey & Basic Grey. Then I added it to a piece of Hello Honey. I die cut a scallop from the Large scallop framelit and added it to the Hello Honey piece and then adhered that to my base with dimensionals. 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss and heat embossed it with White and then stamped the "very merry" in Basic Grey on a scrap of white and trimmed it out. To finish it off I added some Gold Sequins. I really like how these sequins look with Hello Honey. This is a very non traditional card.. but they colors are great together! 

Head over to the 'Tis the Season challenge and see what the other Design Team members created with this great sketch.. The challengs is open for 2 weeks. The Colour Q challenge is open until Sept 15th.
