Moosing You in Elegant Colors

I'm so happy with this little card today! I wasn't planning on doing the color challenge on Split Coast - but when I got home - this card - using this stamp set just popped into my head!

The colors today were Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Very Vanilla - and although Emily said these are elegant colors together (which they are!) - I kind of masculined them up with the moose and pine stamp as well as cuttlebugging the panels.

I used Taylor's Friday Sketch for my card which you can see here.

The images are from a great masculine stamp set called Nature's Style by H&M Stamps and I just noticed that it's 40% off right now! So if you have an outdoorsy person you want to make cards for - hop right over to Heather's site and order one up! While you're there check out her other December deals too!

I walked downtown during lunch today at work and got a little bit of my Christmas shopping done Whoo Hooo! I didn't venture out during crazy black Friday or even for the rest of the weekend - I totally hate crowds so I'm always glad when I can shop at off hours or on line !!

Thanks so much for checking in with me today! Leave me a comment so I can come say hello to you and see what you've been up to!

Stamps: Nature's Style: H&M Stamps
Paper: sahara sand, very vanilla, basic black: SU
Ink: onyx black Versafine
Accessories: foam dimensionals, cuttlebug, swiss dots & distressed stripes folders, circle punch, scalloped circle punch
