Merry Monday # 82...Colors to play with


 
This week we have some colors to play with on our Christmas card.  Aqua, Red and White with CIRCLES!  I used the Lil' Inkers circle stitched set and then stamped my wreath on it.  I embossed the sentiment with 'rouge' Zing embossing powder.
 
Here  is where you need to go to play along with this weeks challenge.  I hope you will join in the fun...I love these Christmas colors!  Almost as much as I love the looks of those yummy cupcakes!!

 
stamps:  PTI Wreath for all Seasons, Think big # 20, Happiest of Holidays, Two Feet Deep
paper:  PTI white and aqua mist
ink:  dark chocolate, aqua mist, pure poppy, kraft
dies:  Lil' Inkers Circle Stitched Mat stack
and the inside of the card...I always try to make it a little softer, so I normally stamp off once before stamping the image on the inside of the card.
 
Thank you so much for taking a look!  Hope you have a great week!  I have NO voice...I bet my husband is happy about that!!
 
Heart Hugs,
Colleen

  8. Beautiful wreath. Love it in those soft colours and in the stitched circles. I have to confess I've just ordered them and am hoping they won't take too long to reach the UK!

    PS ~~ my fave thing for when I would lose my voice as a teacher ~~~ HALLS Breezers ~~ they work like a charm getting your voice back the same day. They are made w/ fruit pectin and very natural. My faves are the berry or the strawberry. :) :)
