JUGS Color Challenge

October 3 was World Card Making Day. I spent the week following doing a lot of blog hopping, browsing through lots of great creations! One of the blogs I happened upon that week was a new challenge blog called "Just Us Girls". They will be offering a different challenge for each week of the month. This is now their 3rd week, and my first time participating. Week 3 will always be a color challenge, and I'm always game for one of those!
I went with a Christmas-theme for this card (this is my second entry - the other is here). I was really pleased with how it turned out. I have loved working with these colors - it has brought me so much inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Stamps: PTI (Polka Dot Basics, Background Basics: Text Style, and Holiday Labels), Martha Stewart Clear Pattern Stamps
Cardstock: PTI (Pure Poppy and Aqua Mist), CTMH (Colonial White and Bamboo)
Inks: PTI (Pure Poppy), CTMH (Colonial White and Breeze)
Accessories: Michael's (Red Saddle-stitch Ribbon), CTMH (Basic Craft Buttons), Button Twine

  2. Karla this is super fun! Love the red polka dots and the ribbon especially. Thanks for playing along with us again - glad we can be a source of inspiration :-) Brand new challenge on saturday. Hope to see you back again.

  3. How do you continue to crank out some of the most beautiful artwork every day? I think you have to be one of my most favorite card makers ever. LOVE this one.

  4. Beautiful card Karla! It looks simple at first, yet there is sooo much detail! I love all the embellies, the ribbon, the button & the snowflake! Thanks for playing along with the Just Us Girls color challenge! I look forward to seeing more of your creations in all the upcoming challenges! :) TFS

  5. Karla! This is all kinds of FABULOUS! The dots, plaid and snowflake look amazing together along with the gorgeous red bow! I am so glad you could play with Just Us Girls (twice!) this week!

  6. Oh, this is FANTASTIC! Love your stitching and that big, white snowflake on your bold red bow!!
