Christmas Cheer

The other day I checked out the color challenge at Fab Friday and immediately thought there was no way I'd be able to get all those colors onto one card.  Fast forward a few days and I found a (somewhat) new challenge called ShowCASe Your Style that gave me an idea for incorporating all these colors in one card!

I thought the striped layers made a good argument for using the Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.  And those cool colors were a nice contrast to the warm tones of the poinsettia.  I just love how they look together.  The pairing of these colors is a little unexpected, but I really think the stripes draw your eye right in to the focal point.  Lucky for me this wee sentiment fit exactly in the space to the left of the poinsettia.

I think this wraps up my 2014 Christmas card making season.  I sure hope so, especially since it's the middle of the month and I have to get all these cards signed and mailed out!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome use of the color palette, Jen! I would have never thought to use them like this. It's a gorgeous card. Totally love it. Bev

You really made these colors work! I couldn't think of anything to do with them so decided to walk away from that challenge. The blue stripes really do draw the eye to the poinsettia. Gorgeous!
