Merry Monday #264 - A Color Challenge

Hello friends.  Happy to be the hostess this week at Merry Monday, and I love to do color challenges!


Wouldn't you love to hang a wreath like this on your front door?!  It's a little bit country, a little bit vintage, and a whole lot of FUN with the colors of KRAFT and RED!

I had a panel of white that I had stenciled in red using Tim Holtz's Poinsettia stencil laying on my desk from another project, so that was my starting point for my card.


I added a piece of kraft striped DSP (PTI) to the side of my stenciled panel and attached to a white card base.  My sentiment is from PB Rejoice With Joy and then I used a PB die Burst Of Red for my flower.  The back piece is kraft cs and the top layer of the flower is die cut from POW Red Glitter Paper.  I also added a strip of the red glitter paper between the striped DSP and stenciled panel.  A few iridescent sequins finished off my card.


The countdown is on friends, so let us help you get those cards done in time!  Grab any Christmas stamp and your RED and KRAFT cardstocks and play along with us this week!  The DT has some FABULOUS inspiration for you to get you started...check it all out right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
