Here is the card I made for this challenge:
I was thinking to take a break from challenges this week. But how could I? after checking out the new color challenge that Lauren Meader is hosting this week. I mean those sweet and soft colors are irresistible. I couldn’t help myself, so I decided to create a card that it has been in my mind for days. Does that mean that I am ready for the holidays? I am not really sure because I get a little bit home sick during those days! I miss my family and I don’t know yet if we will be able to spend the holidays with them.
Ok! Onto the card: The challenge for this week is to create a card/project using these colors:brown,light blue, and white. My challenge was to figure out how to incorporate the brown color on my card. It is a warm color, but it does look stronger against the softness of the light blue and the white. Thus, I added it as an accent color. Here is what I did: I grabbed a piece of chocolate brown ribbon and placed it underneath the paper punch to create that trim. Then to make the white paper trim pop, I added tons of glitter to it. It does look like winter. Believe me!~ it is the touch of white snow I was trying to incorporate on my card, I hope I achieved that.
I wish you could see my card, it does look simple but very elegant. Besides, holidays cards should be simple and easy to make. I love details, but don't want to spend a lot of time making card that requiere a lot of work;especially for Christmas when there are a lots of thing to do!
Hope this card will inspire you! ~ thanks for stopping by. If you have time, write me a comment so I can visit your space too!!
