Merry Monday #77 - Color Challenge

Good morning friends.  Adding to my Christmas card stash and playing along with Merry Monday's color challenge today.

 

It took my mind a little bit to wrap around all those colors, but the more I looked at it, the more I loved how festive it looked!  My card is definitely not as bright as the picture, but I went for more of a clean and simple look and I really like how it turned out!  Take a look:


If you click on the picture, it's a lot easier to see that I really did use all 4 colors.  I stamped the wreath (PTI's Wreath for All Season's) in Always Artichoke (SU!), and then added a small holly that I die cut (PTI's Holly Jolly) with Certainly Celery cardstock (SU!).  I added 2 pink and 1 red pearl to the holly and had all 4 colors in one simple element.  I added a white layer of cardstock that I cut a circle (off centered) in and pop dotted to add a little more visual interest to the simple wreath.  I finished by adding my sentiment (PTI's "Fillable Frames #9) to the bottom and red and white twine to the top.  Clean and simple, and I'm definitely going to make more of this one! :0)

Make sure to check out the rest of the entries here...there really are some beautiful cards this week! :0)  Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!
