FFC05, Love, Peace, Joy


I've been playing around with this week's Festive Friday challenge for a while. It's a colour challenge:



As pretty as the inspiration photo is, I could not get this colour combination to work for me for the longest time. But in the end, I went with a basic CAS rule. Add LOTS of white.

I used The Stamps of Life Minis4circles set for the sentiment, spacing the 3 words out out to take advantage of the height of the panel.

ETA (April 10 at 5:20) - look what I just found on Pinterest! Man, I'm so on trend! lol!

Oh, I love the softness of this card! I like how the snowflakes are highlighted by the coloured circles. And repeating the circles on the base card is genius.

You're so trendy they probably made that pillow after they saw your card! LOL! Love the gold embossing over the top!

Stop it, you did NOT find that pillow after you made your card? That just gives my geese pimples, Ardy!! Now your card is pinned, too! Isn't that too cool? It's a luscious card!!
