Watercolor Winter

Just so you all know…I had NO INTENTION of BUYING THIS SET!  But then my friend Connie started sharing soooo many cute cards with this that okay, I CAVED!!!  LOL!!!  Now, you all know that I LOVE pink snowflakes right?  Well, the other thing…I LOVE blue poinsettias!  I know…I have issues.

This is for the 400th color challenge on SCS.  There were three different color combos to pick from and since I was wanting to do some blue poinsettias well, it was a no brainer for me…LOL!!!  This STARTED as a card for Mojo Monday, but the sketch was just too fussy for me so I just used things laying on top of my desk.  (HINT:  if you NEVER put things away…you ALWAYS have PLENTY to work with…LOL!!!)

Okay…details…base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  Next are banners in Silver Glimmer and Island Indigo polka dots.  The Very Vanilla panel is the Window Framelit with the edges cut off and the sentiment stamped using, well, you guessed it, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo.  This is added using dimensionals.  The poinsettias are outlined with Basic Grey, then inside is Island Indigo – full strength and stamped off once.  The ‘leave’ are again Basic Grey but with Lucky Limeade.  The lighter poinsettia is added using dimensionals.  To finish things off I added Basic Rhinestones in the centers of the poinsettias and along the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.
