Snowy Pine CCMC328

Hi there!  It's time for another Thursday Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!  Today we have a beautiful color combination to use on our creations:  Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Lost Lagoon!  I saw my Ornamental Pine set which I hadn't even inked up yet (yikes, bad stamper!)!  I almost immediately had my idea... does that ever happen to you?  It doesn't happen that way for me most of the time but love it when it does!  {smile}

The card itself is Cherry Cobbler with a Whisper White layer on top of that.  The top cardstock layer is Smoky Slate which was sponged around the perimeter with Lost Lagoon ink.  The pine branch was then stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I sprinkled some Rhinestones around on the needles for some sparkle.

The ornament was heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, cut out by hand then adhered to the card.  A bow of Silver Baker's Twine attaches it to the branch.  The words, also from the set, are stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto the Whisper White banner.

Stamps:  Ornamental Pine
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Lost Lagoon inks; VersaMark
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Smoky Slate
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Heat Tool, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Embossing Powders, Silver Baker's Twine.

Here are the colors for the challenge this week:

Isn't this a great combination?  These colors compliment each other and are quite easy to work with!  How about you joining us this week by making a card or project with these colors (the guidelines are on the Create with Connie and Mary website!)  We would love to see what YOU make with this combination!  

While you're at the Create With Connie and Mary website,  be sure to check out what the other members of the Challenge Team have done with this color scheme challenge... they are so talented and inspire me every week!

 Thanks for dropping by this week!  Have a great weekend and don't forget to stamp if you can!

Gorgeous!!! I think the sponging around the edges adds so much depth and really makes the card amazing!

So pretty! Love the sponging giving the card that soft evening light look. Love the pine needles embossed in white. Lovely winter scene.
