Merry and Bright

Hi there 🙂 I did a card in non-traditional colors this time. I used a sweet elf stamp, Scruffy, from the now closed Make It Crafty store 🙁 I chose the color scheme based on the papers I’d picked out. These were from a magazine that I got years ago. Of course I’ve been hoarding the papers!! After coloring the image with my Copics, I matted the image with some lime green sparkle paper.

I layered up the card base, using purple matting to frame the piece where I placed the image. I die cut a pretty ornament from purple CS, then did inlays with white and lime green sparkle pieces. I used the lime green and purple for the die cut sentiment as well. Love how these untraditional colors really make this card POP!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
