cQc #220 ~ Merry Christmas!

Hi there! It's that time of week again, a new challenge at the ColourQ! These aren't your run of the mill Christmas colors, but I thought they would make a pretty Christmas card. Now speaking of the colors...I had saved the graphic right after it went up and several days later made my card. Then when I loaded it to the team page I noticed it wasn't the Soft Suede that I had used, but in fact Baked Brown Sugar! Thought I was going crazy!!! But a change in color had been made soon after the graphic went up. And when you look at the belt in the graphic, it could be either color! So you'll notice my brown is a bit darker.



I've used my pretty Papertrey Ink bells. I just love the bows in this stamp set. This one is popped up and the tails were curved just a touch for interest. I know they'll flatten out after going through the mail, but they look pretty here!! The sentiment is pretty spiffy in this set too, love the mixed fonts. 


I hope you have time to play along with us this week. The galleries have been filled with such fabulous work and I would love to see something from all of you there too!! 

I have a few new followers that I would like to give a big warm welcome to!! I'm so happy you're sharing in this blogging journey with me. Don't forget to say hi when you stop by, your comments mean the world to me. ~Lisa

Lisa, this has such a vintage feel, love that! So sweet with the bells, bow and boughs. I don't know, I see dark brown in the belt, and it works on your card, so its just perfect. Let's just call it 'artistic license'!
