I spent the day with my sister in law, Jamie, the yesterday and she had on a cute outfit using these colors. Here shirt was red and light gray striped and she paired it with a turquoise tank that peeked out the bottom of the shirt and topped it with a coordinating turquoise scarf. I was so inspired by her outfit that couldn't wait to get home and make a card. And, I knew these were the same challenge colors over at Create with Connie and Mary this week! LOVE it when that happens! I looked for a sketch to use and settled on Mojo Monday 319.
I did tweak the color a little and used Cherry Cobbler instead of Real Red. I'm so pleased with the results! I haven't had a chance to use my Perfect Blend set much and I think it works so well in a Christmas Card. These colors are such fun and worked well with the stamp set.
I used the little snowflake from Snow Day stamped onto the Smokey Slate background and also used the saying "warm wishes" from that same set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the words on the cup. I also paper pieced the Coastal Cabana DSP onto the cup and colored the lid with my Smokey Slate marker. A little Silver Glimmer paper and Frosted Finishes Embellishment add just the right amount of sparkle!
