Merry and Bright


Debbie has challenged us this week at Paper Cupcakes to create a Christmas Card using colors other than the traditional ones. I chose to use card stock that I picked up in a paper pack several years ago to create my card along with Nina's image "Merry and Bright" which is a fav of mine. I love moose and he is adorable. I colored this using Prismacolors pencils and oms.
The lime green satin ribbon is from the Dollar Tree and I also used a Making Memories pebble. I hope that you can join in our challenge and play along this week, we always have a great time seeing your creations and visiting your blogs. So hop on over and see what the rest of the team has created and get your thinking caps on.
I was at Wal-Mart lately and browsing the Christmas decorations and there is some lovely inspiration there. They are offering ornaments and accessories in brown, teal, peridot green and purples to name just a few of the non traditional colors.
Happy Monday and here's hoping that you have a wonderful start to your week. Hugs and laughs to all!
