The Color Hues Challenge #7~Blue and Magenta...Snowflake Joy


Happy December (that came around fast!) and welcome to The Color Hues Challenge #7, blue and magenta are the hues we're inviting you to play with for the next two weeks.  Such a pretty combination, for Christmas or...well, anything!

A while back (as in pre-winter) I was lucky to win the TH Stunning Snowflake dies and they're finally making a debut here. They are soooo pretty and the two dies offer a real variety of combinations with mixing/matching layers. I won't pretend these delicate flakes were 'easy' to work with, but I think that's due to the mirror cardstock I used that makes things rather slippery.  I made three snowflake combinations and was 'this close' to putting all on a card until my husband intervened. He said "One per card" and I listened! Glad I did: I now have three more for my Christmas stash! Just sharing two here; the otherswill make an appearance later.  Oh...and the Joy diecut is from Photoplay. LOVE it!

Please visit the rest of the team; you'll be sooooo impressed by their creativity:

The challenge is open until 9:00 AM (EST) on December 14th.
 The winners will be posted an hour before our next challenge goes live.
The overall winner will have the opportunity to be a 
future Guest Designer!

Thank you for dropping by!
