Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #148~Designer's Choice, where our sweet Yvonne invites us to create a Christmas card using neutral colours only. Greys, browns, whites...in all their varying shades, tones and hues...can be incredibly beautiful (my house - yes you heard that right - details down the road - has those very colours and oh, how I love them...).
Heidi, from Stamp Along with Heidi, is joining us as our Guest Designer. Not only is she super talented, but I discovered she lives in Alberta, my province, just 'down the road' a couple hours! How awesome is that! Her neutral card is lovely, as are those of my darling teammates:
Today, I'm sharing a NOEL card, using Concord & 9th's Joyful Noel dies and stamps, along with Barnwood Background. Hard to see in the photo are the 'little' details: the N is cut from deep brown cardstock embossed with a woodgrain folder; the wreath is shimmer paper; the E and L are stamped with word and woodgrain images from Joyful Noel. A little kraft star with a Nuvo droplet is the finishing touch...
NOTE: Honoured to be selected as a Cards In Envy~Typography In the Mailbox favourite by Kristie. THANK YOU!
We're going to a craft fair today; one of the cyclists we know creates gorgeous bracelets (I have three already, which I wear all the time) and necklaces using a variety of organic elements. Selecting some as gifts are on my radar. The sandalwood beauties she shared on FB and IG have caught my eye...
Heyyyy....these bracelets are neutral colours, too! No wonder I'm smitten!
Looking forward to seeing your Christmas Cards in Neutral Colours in the gallery!

Curtain Call Challenge~Acorns. No acorns but I have featured a neutral/woodgrain palette and an alignment of images. If this doesn't fit your challenge, totally understand!
