Christmas in July: Blogger's Challenge, Week 3

This week's Blogger Challenge was Christmas in July. Our challenge was to create a Christmas themed card in non-traditional Christmas colors. I created two -- the one at right, and the one below, both using Stampin' Up!'s Peaceful Wishes and Flannel Background stamp sets. Both use the same color scheme: chocolate chip, not quite navy, and more mustard, plus a touch of white. At left, "Peaceful Wishes" is embossed in Chocolate then highlighted with metallic rub-ons. I really need to use that stamp Flannel stamp more!!

The card on the right is white-embossed and uses a different layout and ribbon.
These two challenge cards will be randomly drawn from those of you who comment...and will be announced next Friday.
Here is last week's winner of the Baroque Motif card: Marsha! Marsha, please email me with your email and snail mail addresses so that I can send the card to you: phuntoon@optonline.net.
Make sure to check out the other challenge cards -- the list of players is on my left sidebar.
Now, if you will excuse me, UPS just dropped a VERY large box off at my house and I have a new order to go through! I have lotsa rubber to cut!! Will post all my new creations soon...

Love it Pat! I never would have thought to combine those colors, but they look awesome together. Very woodsy!

Can't wait to see what stamps you ordered and what you'll do with them. :)
