A Duo of Cards


Card #1 inspired by 4 challenges...

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT634 ...A sketch challenge!!  TSOT always gives us an optional theme that we can incorporate into our challenge if we wish.  For this challenge that option is TREES!!  I decided a Christmas tree was perfect since we are now in December.

Just Add Ink // #JAI681 ...An inspiration challenge!!  My inspiration from the photo given...the colors, the FA LA LA, and the Christmas theme.  I love this bright non-traditional take on Christmas.

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC157 ...A theme challenge!!  CHRISTMAS is the theme for this current challenge.  Very fitting since we are in the month of December.  A very bright and Merry CHRISTMAS to you!!

The Paper Players // #PP669 ...A theme challenge!!  CHRISTMAS!!  Yep they too have a Christmas theme challenge that begins today!!  It is not usual for there to be several Christmas challenges to be running at the same time in the month of December!!

Card #2 inspired by 4 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC553 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was the perfect starting point for today's second card.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc449 ...A color challenge!! White, Real Red, and Granny Apple Green are the colors called for in this color challenge.  Could easily be a Christmas color combination but I decided to make it a birthday combo.

{PIN}spirational Challenges // #308 ...A monthly Pinterest inspired birthday challenge.  The Pinterest photo that is our inspiration for this month's challenge is all red and green.

Simply Clean & Simple // #DEC23 ...A clean & simply challenge!!  This is a CAS challenge with an optional theme of green and red.  I used Granny Apple Green and Real Red from Stampin Up.
