WMS March Christmas Card Challenge

On the 10th of each month -  there is a Christmas Card Challenge posted in the Playroom of the Waltzingmouse Forum that I participate in.

For March - Cassie Jones was our hostess and her challenge was to use Pear Green and Navy Blue -  a very unlikely color combination for Christmas don't you think!   I NEVER in a life time would have picked those colors up -  but I am thrilled with how my cards came out!
I recently downloaded the cut files Claire has for this wonderful set called Festive Foliage (they are free in the WMS shop!) so I thought I'd try using them on my cards.

I used Memento Pear Tart ink on the Mistletoe, the holly and the pine bough - then used Memento Danube Blue for the berries and the pinecones layering them on top with foam dots.  I used the same sentiment from A Cottage Christmas on each card.









I'm going to have so many cards ready by December - I might have enough for 2013 AND 2014!! LOL!!!



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Festive Foliage, A Cottage Christmas
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Memento Pear Tart and Danube Blue
Accessories:  Festive Foliage Cut Files (free!) - Waltzingmouse, foam dots.
