sweet & simple adventure

Although I thought about this card longer than I did yesterday's card, this one was much quicker to make.  At the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club Lesley offered us a color challenge with a twist - red, aqua, white, and circles.  At Festive Friday the current colour challenge is red, white, and aqua! (I know I've mentioned before how amused I am when little things in my life converge like that).  At Tis' the Season I found a sweet, simple sketch, but the twist is all about the stripes.  The Season of Style designer series paper has this fabulous red & white striped paper - I knew it would look great with Pool Party - but I had to think about the circles:

stamp sets - Warmth & Wonder (hostess), Daydream Medallions; ink - Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Versamark; card stock - Pool Party, Whisper White; designer series paper - Season of Style; punches - 3/4" circle, Full Heart; Stampin' Dimensionals

Daydream Medallions in clear mount has circles of rubber that "punch out" from the centers of the medallions, and one of them has another medallion in its center - that's where I got the ring in the background.  

Warmth & Wonder is getting a lot of play time on my crafting table - it seems to be a real "go to" set for me this season.  It can be yours free with any order (individual or workshop) of $150, but only until January 2 - don't miss your chance.  The two sentiments are my favorite but I also love the snowflake, the cardinal (which fits a punch!), the reindeer, and the 2-step tree with baubles - a versatile set, indeed!

My favorite kind of card is the CAS! Your is awesome and great job combining the various challenges. I am a huge fan of the Warmth & Wonder stamp set, too.

Love the rings for the background...so subtle yet they really pop! The stripes are perfect and the snowflake in the circle is the perfect accent next to the sentiment banner!

Thanks so much for joining us at 'Tis The Season!
