This week's challenge was to duplicate the card layout on Page 97 of the new catalog....the one at the bottom of the page featuring Sassy Stems. Cute card and it's a layout that I don't think I've ever really used. But, sometimes a challenge is a GOOD thing, right?
Since I seem to be still in the Christmas spirit from last week's challenge, I grabbed my brand-new Punch Pals, along with a couple of the newer colors: Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate. I have to admit that I wasn't sold on Purely Pomegranate....I haven't purchased the ink pad or anything with this color. All I have is some of the CS that came in the assorted package. BUT, it was the perfect color with the Wild Wasabi for a Christmas combination!!! It reminded me of the Marvelous Magenta of a few years ago....that was one color I never really liked. BUT, I may be a convert, now.....it really is a pretty color!
Unfortunately, the card looks a bit washed out on screen, but in person, it is really wonderful! (Even if I may say so myself!!) Don't forget to check out the other bloggers who take part in this challenge....the links are on the side of the page.
