Mustard Olives

I created this card for today SCS Color Combo Challenge CC133. I used the layout from last week's Sketch Challenge as well SC142. I am having a stamp camp this week and wanted to show that we can use any color combo for the Christmas season. I stamped the background on the More Mustard with the snowflakes from the Merry & Bright set in Bashful Blue (love that color). I used the Weathered background stamp on the Old Olive with the same color ink. For the image of the tree, I was going to stamp it in Old Olive but I really wanted to use the More Mustard for the garland around the tree so I decided to color the stamp with the Old Olive and More Mustard Write Markers. I used the Bashful Blue snowflakes around the tree as well. To give the tree more color I used the Blender Pen and Old Olive Ink. My fellow CCStalkers would be proud...I did use one little embellie! A silver diamond vintage brad!

This one was a fun card to make! Here is the recipe:

SU! Sets: Jolliest Time of Year, Merry & Bright, and Weathered

CS: More Mustard, Old Olive, Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla

Ink: More Mustard, Old Olive, and Bashful Blue

Accessories: Silver Diamond Vintage Brad & Blender Pen

Also, I am quite excited today because I set up everything for World Card Making Day. A local church in Bolingbrook is allowing me to use their room and I am going to donate 1/2 of the proceeds to them and the other 1/2 to Ronald McDonald House. For $5, they will get to make 5 cards for themselves and 1 card to go to Ronald McDonald House. I am hoping that it will give me some new customer leads as well as giving to a good cause!

Thanks for looking!
