Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-021My card:

DSCN1223While I love the inspiration photo this week, I really did not want to create another Fall themed card – it’s time for all things Christmas in my humble opinion!  So, I decided to the colours would work well for something masculine and at the same time, that would help fill my dwindling stash of masculine cards.

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….! and check them out. We can’t wait to see what you create!!! Antonia, Bhavana, Hayley, Jinny, Julia, Kim, Ren, Tara, Valentyna, and our Guest Designer for November, Deanne!

The challenge will end on November 23rd, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules, to keep things fair – you can check them out here.

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler

Ink: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry

Stamp Sets: Watercolour Words, Gorgeous Grunge

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Brick Wall Embossing Folder, Square Collection Framelits, Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Happy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for another great challenge at Seize the Birthday!

And our challenge this time, is perfect for adding Masculine cards to your stash, as we would like to see “Nothing but Neutrals”! But remember, if “Toppings” are not your thing, it is always “Anything Goes” at Seize the Birthday!
