Woo hoo! You know what today is!! It’s FRIDAY! If I didn’t start my post off like that you would think you were in the wrong place! LOL! Work was very busy all week and office equipment tried to thwart my progress on numerous occasions. Let’s see if I can prevail today. I’m off to Manhattan tonight with my friend Heather to meet some peeps. It’s supposed to be fall like here today with summer making a comeback over the weekend. I’ll let you know about the festivities tomorrow!
It’s also time for another Fab Friday challenge. This week we have a fun color challenge for you…
Every once in a while when I see that there are five colors I panic a little but then I realized that all of these colors are in the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper. The base of the card is Sahara Sand Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of the aforementioned DSP that I “ticketed” the corners on and backed with a piece of Chocolate Chip. The snowflakes are from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and are stamped in Soft Sky and cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies. The tag is rounded at the top with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and “ticketed” on the bottom corners. A piece of Crushed Curry punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack is at the top with some Linen Thread tied in a bow. The greeting is from the Christmas Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip. I stamped the Cheer on a cut out from the Label Card Thinlits Dies, I like the 3D effect that it gives the greeting. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know that I love a non traditional Christmas card and this one definitely fits the bill. It also has a little bit of rustic country feel to it. Thank you very much for checking in with me today to see my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s color challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what my talented teammates have done and enter your card in the gallery so we can see how clever you are! Have a very fab Friday! 🙂
