Card Patterns 132 and ColourQ 102

Apparently I skipped Halloween and Thanksgiving and went straight to Christmas this week. I liked simplicity of the sketch at CardPatterns this week, and decided to use the beautiful PTI Mehndi Medallion to stamp the panel.

I started out with red, green, and pink, and then remembered the colors from the ColourQ challenge. I loved the addition of blue, but I had a hard time incorporating the gray. I decided to use gray for the two tabs on top of the panel and for the sentiment below. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about it, but I think it's growing on me a little bit! :)




Supplies:
Paper: PTI white, blue from scrap box
Stamps: PTI Mehndi Medallion, Hero Arts sentiment
Ink: Brilliance rocket red, ColorBox

These are unusual colours for a Christmas card Ann, but they work beautifully and I love the stamped panel.

It really is lovely...the gray tags balance the sentiment and bring it all together beautifully!
