Color Create Challenge

Today is a snow day here in Frontier. Big chunky flakes that are filled with spring water. I'm sharing with you a card that I made last night that I think is super sweet. I used the Color Create color challenge, which is chocolate, coffee and cream. This card was really fun to create and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do. Don't forget to also enter in for my Sweets, there is a $15 gift certificate from Pez-a-Doodles in it!!!

Also MAKE SURE to check out the Pez-A-Doodles New releases event. Take a moment to figure out todays hint at Sandie's The new sets from Pez-a-Doodles are FAN-FLIPPIN-TASTIC!!! You could win some great stuff.

Now on with the show.


I tried my hand at something a little different with this card. I distress inked the embossed background with photo brown ink to really pull the chocolate and cream combo for the top part of the card. And for the first time I used a whole lotta buttons for a border so to speak. I just got these vintage buttons from Paper Trey and if you haven't purchased buttons before, Theirs are truly beautiful. Then I added some pink pearls to a few of those cute buttons to bring in just a hint of pink to the card. The coffee cup was glazed over to give it that porceline look using Glossy accents.

Supplies:
stamps: Unity Stamps March Kit of the Month-coffee on display, Polka Dot Pie-Chocolate Treats 1 Studio G-Warm and Cozy
Spellbinders: Scalloped and regular Large rectangles
Paper: Card stock-SU Basic Black, PTI White, BG bittersweet-Almond Toffee, Scrap black and white paper, embossed hand made paper
Accessories: PTI Vintage Cream and White buttons, Pink pearls, Ranger Glossy Accents,
Coloring agents: Tim Holtz Distress ink Photo Brown, Versafine-Onyx Black, Cinnamon Stickles, Coal and Coffee Shimmerz, Pink glaze pens.
Tools: Big Shot, Scor-pal, Purple Cows 2-in-1 trimmer

Happy Crafting
