FFC05, Love, Peace, Joy


I've been playing around with this week's Festive Friday challenge for a while. It's a colour challenge:



As pretty as the inspiration photo is, I could not get this colour combination to work for me for the longest time. But in the end, I went with a basic CAS rule. Add LOTS of white.

I used The Stamps of Life Minis4circles set for the sentiment, spacing the 3 words out out to take advantage of the height of the panel.

ETA (April 10 at 5:20) - look what I just found on Pinterest! Man, I'm so on trend! lol!

  2. Oh, I love the softness of this card! I like how the snowflakes are highlighted by the coloured circles. And repeating the circles on the base card is genius.
