Sunny Christmas

I spotted a color challenge that appealed to me on the Create with Connie and Mary blog.  It's a color challenge.  By adding a Christmas sentiment it became a non-traditional Christmas card.  The sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers. 

Here's the deets:
stamps - Stampin' Up - "Seaside" and "Short and Sweet"
ink - Versamark
paper - Stampin Up "Confetti White", "Wisteria Wonder", "Pool Party" card stock and "Notebook" Designer Series Paper; Silver card stock
miscellaneous - silver embossing powder; Divine Twine; Seashell charm; SU Crochet Lace ribbon; Cuttlebug dots embossing folder

Here's the challenges:
Splitcoast Stampers SC413 - sketch
Create with Connie and Mary CCMC228 - Wisteria Wonder, Baja Breeze, Silver Gllimmer
Chocolate, Coffe and Cards - CAS
Charisma #47 - Christmas with a Twist, no gold, green or red
Mash Up FM87 - White and Silver gifts photo/gift project
Pause, Dream Enjoy #48 - Forgotten Stash (the dp, the embossing folder and twine are all very old)

Thanks for stopping by, come back again.


  1. Like the Clean & Simple CAS style of the card. The use of the crochet lace & sea shell charm compliment this card wonderfully. Thanks for entering Pause Dream Enjoy Forgotten Stash challenge.
