Modern Take on a Color Combo Challenge:

 I am not a big fan of traditional colors for Christmas.  I used to be.  But as I've "woken up" in my age of life...I have realized I really don't like them.  Feeling like I have to use red & green just makes me frustrated.  It isn't like I don't like those colors sometimes.  😁  But I just don't think we should HAVE to use them!  Until today...Day 18 of this 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge.  When there is a color combo challenge telling me I have to use a red & green color combo.  😂  I thought about making something using a take on these colors.  BUT...I embraced it.  And went with a bit modern & more masculine design:

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron, Sahara Sand
Inks:  VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Shimmery White, Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Vellum
Stamps: Tree Angle
Tools: Subtle Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Stapler, Subtle Embossing Folder
Accessories White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Woven Threads Sequins

What do you think?  There actually is a lot of texture here.  The top layer is a piece of Vellum that I embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I placed this over a layer I adhered narrow strips of these colors onto:

I love those staples and the little detail it adds.  Along with those glitzy sequins.  😊  Look at that fun layer though:

Also...I like how the stripes turned out a whole bunch.  I think I'm going to do this in another fun color combo!  Hee. 

What do you think?  I hope you enjoy!  Are you following along with this challenge month?!  😊  It has been so much fun!  Play along with us!
