Merry Monday #269 - A Color Challenge

Hello friends.  This weeks challenge at Merry Monday is brought to us by Debbie, and she has a FUN color challenge for you!


Easy peasy, right?  Just pick 3 of your favorite holiday colors and create away!  As much as I love using non traditional colors, at heart, I'm still a big fan of red & green!


I had to have SU!'s Painted Harvest when it first came out a few months back because of a card similar to this I had seen on Pinterest, and I finally took it out of the package to play today!  I used Old Olive and Mossy Meadow inks for my 2 greens on the wreath, and then Cherry Cobbler ink for the berries and Cherry Cobbler cs for the letters to spell out JOY.  (SSS Big Joy)  A few sequins and some Cherry Cobbler thick bakers twine finished off my CAS card.

Two weeks till Christmas friends, so pick 3 favorite colors and play along with us this week!  You can find all the details and beautiful inspiration from the rest of the DT right HERE

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