Today's card is a dual-challenge card. For starters, I used sketch #254 over at Stamping 411.
Secondly, I'm participating in the inaugural challenge at Dynamic Duos, where you're given a two-color combination, along with neutrals.
My first thought, as usual, was to gravitate towards something floral. But then I got to thinking about the color Pool Party and decided a snowman scene might be cool (pun intended)! So I flipped the sketch sideways and here's what I came up with:
The snowman set is oldie but goodie called "Frosty." The greeting inside is also an old retired set entitled "Christmas Cheer." I will definitely give Mr. Frosty an orange carrot nose now that I've entered him in the color challenge! He looks rather anemic without it, don't you think? But I wanted to stay true to the rules of the challenge! Be sure you pop over to both sites and check out the great entries!
Don't forget to check out my Stamps for Sale tab above left. I'm still trying to make room in my craft room AND my budget for stuff from the new Stampin' Up! catalog (may have to start playing the lottery since I'm not working). For those of you that aren't demonstrators and haven't seen it yet, stand by .... there's some great stuff coming your way June 1st!!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
