ColourQ #64


Good morning!  I've been a busy bee trying to finish up some projects (both crafty and otherwise) before Christmas.  How are your preparations coming?  I hope you can find a little bit of time in your week to play with the latest ColourQ challenge!  Just take a look at this sweet color combo:


Mmmmm, makes me want to curl up with a steaming hot mug!  I decided to give you one last holiday card, if you're not sick of them yet!  I've seen these fabulous punched wreaths around blog-land, so I thought I'd give one a try.  I first cut a ring using two circle Nesties, then punched the leaves and glued them to the ring.  Super easy!

The gem colors are a bit hard to see in the photos, but they are a very close match to Real Red, Regal Rose, and Pink Pirouette.  I added a woodgrain debossed panel behind the wreath and a label cut and stamped with PTI's Fillable Frames #10, with a sentiment from Signature Christmas.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, white), Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizazz)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #10, Signature Christmas)
Ink:  Clearsnap (Cranberry)
Tools:  Martha Stewart (leaf punch), Papertrey Ink (woodgrain impression plate, Fillable Frames #10 die), Spellbinders (circle dies)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (ribbon), Me & My Big Ideas (rhinestones)

Make sure you stop by the ColourQ blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!  They never disappoint!

Thanks for stopping by today, during a time when I know many of you are overcommitted and rushing to get everything done before the end of another year.  I appreciate each and every one of your visits and comments so very much!!

Have a great Tuesday!
