Color Challenge Tuesday

This week's color challenge was basic gray, bashful blue, and certainly celery. This just hit me as a wintry combination, so I went with it. I stamped the block sentiment in bashful blue ink on the same color paper, then stamped it again in celery and basic gray on those colors of paper. Then I cut out various parts and pieces and attached them to the bashful blue piece. I stamped the background layer with swirls and poinsettias from Season of Joy. I placed the sentiment layer in place, pierced around the edge, picked up the sentiment piece, added the ribbon, then popped up the sentiment piece with dimensionals. I then added lots of Stickles (you can use crystal effects and glitter) to make it sparkle! Alright, stamp class girls, let's say it together - "Stickles go on LAST!"
Thanks for stopping by!

OK, I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but your cards looks like they came straight out of the catalog, Becky! Stampin' Up needs you on their design team! This is fabulous!
