...Color Challenge #196

This was my submission for today's Color Challenge at (Taken With Teal, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White). I started with a Riding Hood Red Cardstock base, then matted a piece of Taken With Teal Cardstock that was stamped with the dotted circle from "Snowflake Splendor" (Verve Visual) in Taken With Teal Classic Ink with Whisper White Cardstock. The edges of the panel were pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then a piece of 5/8" Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the entire panel before it was attached to the base using Dimensionals. The focal panel consisted of the following: Baja Breeze Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Taken With Teal Cardstock, and Riding Hood Red Cardstock. The solid snowflake circles were stamped on the white cardstock in Baja Breeze Classic Ink, as were the small snowflakes in the background of the sentiment panel. The dotted circles were stamped in Taken With Teal Craft Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. The sides of the snowflake panel were pierced, and the Spiral Punch was used at the top of the same panel. The completed baja/white panel was attached to the base with Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark Ink, then embossed with Black Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. That panel was also popped up with Dimensionals. Easy as can be!

That's it for today! I have a shipment of new catalog sneak peeks and hostess sets coming some time today, so I need to get all of my housework finished. I plan on playing with my new goodies for the rest of the day! BWAHAHAHA!!! I will see you all tomorrow with a card using the new stuff and (hopefully) the Sketch Challenge at SCS.
