Happy Sunday, peeps! Can you believe it is December already?!! I am the hostess at The Paper Players today, and here’s my challenge for you:
What does the word evergreen bring to mind? Fir trees, pine boughs, a nice green color? I have to laugh, because my card is definitely NOT a traditional evergreen color, although there are lots of evergreen-y images on it:
When I saw the Color Throwdown challenge this week, the colors intrigued me, and made me think outside the traditional evergreen color box:
I also used the Deconstructed Sketch for this week:
I used a lot of images from a retired Cornish Heritage Farms set called Evergreen Holiday, stamping them randomly on my Gumball Green card base:
Then I stamped the trees on a white circle and embossed them:
I added a piece of burlap ribbon and my “25” (which reminds me of a Bingo piece!) and my banner; the side panel is Brushed Silver embellished with a piece of the pretty silver ribbon SU has in the Holiday mini, and I finished it all with some “snow” stamped in Encore Silver using the Gorgeous Grunge set. Here’s the inside:
Even though this is a bit bright, I like the non-traditional color! I hope you’ll play along at The Paper Players and share your evergreen creation with us as well!
We had Thanksgiving at John’s sister’s, and she had not seen Cassidy since she was a baby! Cassidy asked her if she could help her do anything (can you believe that?) and Mimi had her fill the nut bowl:
She didn’t eat much turkey, but she kept us all entertained! Have a blessed day!
