Who is ready to be challenged?!  Who is ready for a COLOR Challenge?!  It is TGIF CHALLENGE TIME!!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ  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!!!  ๐Ÿ˜€ 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!  ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

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!
