CR84FN Challenge #1

      WOW!  Two posts in one day that aren't pre-scheduled.  LOL
      My second card today card is for a new color challenge at Mona Pendleton's blog, Cupcake's Creations.  Mona challenged us to make a card with red, green, and tan, so here's what I came up with.

     I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Kraft mat, added a little DP, a snowflake covered in Diamond Dust, a sparkly bow with a Prima flower, and an image I stamped with one of my new Giordano Christmas stamps.  I used Distress inks to color the image and then added some Stickles to the fluffy parts of Santa's suit.
     I'm sure Mona would love for you to come join in too on her first color challenge.
Have a great weekend!
