Colour Create Challenge #26










Good morning everyone.
It's hard to believe it's time again for the Colour Create Challenge. I don't know where these days go...but they sure fly by.
The beautiful colours for this challenge are brought to you by Chris and she has chosen "Ruby, Cream and Gold". The optional extra is "Gems".


Here is a little inspiration to get you started.
The prize this week is a $25.00 gift voucher from "Simon Says Stamp".

I thought these would be great colours for a Christmas card, so I used my new Flourishes Pointsettia and Boxwood set.




I embossed the image with gold 3 times and painted them with Tombows. I cut out and layered some of the petals. The cream pieces have been embossed with my CB holly folder. The card was embossed with my CB swiss dots folder. The circles were cut with my nesties. I cut the corners from a 1" square. The borders are cut with my Martha Stewart punch. I went a little wacky with the gems, but what is a Christmas card without lots of bling.

Be sure to stop by the CCC blog to see some fabulous creations from the rest of the DT. I hope you will be able to play along with us.

Have a great day...Thanks for stopping by...
