Soft & Seasonal...TGIF Challenge 241:

Who is ready to be challenged?!  Who is ready for a COLOR Challenge?!  It is TGIF CHALLENGE TIME!!!! 🙌  As a member of the Design Team, I am going to share some challenge inspiration with you first.  Then you get to play along!  And just post your creation on our TGIF Challenge Blog!  It is easy, fun, & exciting!!!  😀 is my card:

And here is the challenge:

You can see I totally stayed on theme! This screams a winter card to me...and I'm sure most people.  So I was going to go a different direction. hands just started working and Christmas came out!  Haha.  But I LOVE all the fun details...

The ornaments are embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and then watercolored with Seaside Spray ink.  I love the dimension and texture it gives them.  (Also...yes...I'm addicted to watercoloring.  Haha.) 

I also did a double scalloped layer (with Silver Glimmer Paper AND the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon) AND embossed the Designer Series Paper with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Texture, texture, and more texture!  😍😍😍

I just really love the focal point and love how all the little details shine. 

I hope you enjoy and are inspired to play along!  Just head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog and play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you make!

I really appreciate you visiting my little space on the web!  And hope you let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you get and papercrafting supplies!
