Merry & Bright!

This is for my Monday challenge I do with my CCEE group on SCS. This week we had a color challenge, to use Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery to create our cards .... sounds easy .... but there was a catch ..... our cards had to have a Christmas or winter theme.

After some thought I decided to pull out this snowman stamp from Darcies Rubber Stamps as I knew there was plenty on there that I could color in with those colors.

I stamped the snowman onto white card and colored in, paper pierced 3 corners of this card and layered onto the eggplant & celery cards .... I also used my ticket corner punch to punch the corners of the eggplant layer (an idea I borrowed from Cindy_Haffner). I used my snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss my pale plum and eggplant panels.

The layout for this card is taken from Julee's of Poetic Artistry's Mojo Monday #11 sketch challenge
