CSAYL Challenge #24 -- Color Combination



Happy Friday and time for another Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge.  The theme for this week's CSAYL Challenge #24 is a Color Combo -- use Kraft and combine with any other colors/patterns you would like.

This week's sponsor is Meljen's Designs.


For my card, I used Candy Cane Heart by Meljen's Design. In keeping with the challenge theme, I combined Kraft with traditional red and green Christmas colors and a touch of silver.  The image was printed on Kraft paper and colored with colored pencils. Although barely visible in the photo, I added lots of glitter and bling.  To coordinate with the silver accents, I added a metal Merry Christmas sentiment.

I will be entering this card in the following fun challenges:
LEJ Designs Challenge No. 61 -- Christmas in July
Try it on Tuesday -- Show us your Metal
'ABC' Challenge 36 -- Christmas in July
The Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge 13  -- Metal Magic just added something metal
Card Mania Challenge CMC#24 -- Christmas in July
Merry Monday July Challenge -- Anything Goes Christmas Card Challenge

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
