TSG134 - Color Challenge

This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week- Theresa! She has challenged us to make a card using the colors blue, pink, and red with a winter theme.

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card using the colors with a winter theme, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (December 19th).  The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG134 so we can check out your beautiful work!

I had loads of fun with this challenge - Pink, Blue, and Red - all the colors in My Mind's Eye Love Me papers!  I paired this challenge with My Little Friend, which I haven't inked up in a while and it was needing some love.  I stamped this little cutie in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with Copics - I cut him out and then popped him up over colored cardstock.   Lots of stitching going on again with this card and I finished it with a blue ribbon and some pearls.  The fab layout is Jen Shults' DS29. Now, if you are wondering why this little gnome holding a flower is winter themed, let me just say that Valentine's Day is in the winter, so that's where I'm going with this one, LOL!  At least that is what Corinna told me to say...  I should really read all the challenge instructions properly before making a card, cause I think pink snowflakes would have been really cute too!  But I think that since February is the coldest month here in Colorado, then Valentine's Day counts as a winter theme.  Yep.  That is all.

Thanks for stopping by!
