Just Go Wherever It Takes You

Vintage Stamping Challenges has a colour challenge theme this month of Orange, Purple, Black, Red and Green.  You can pick any one of these colours or all of them if you wish.  This is my DT piece for the challenge and I chose to use Orange, Black, Red and Purple as my main colours.

This definitely didn’t start out as a Christmas card but as you can see that is what it ended up being.

Way to early for me to be thinking about the little red fat man but as I was starting the background for some reason snow and Christmas popped into my head.  Well that was it everything just snowballed from there. lol!!

Here is a close up pic of the boy on his sledge …cute or what.  You can find him here and the lady is here.

To enter this months challenge just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store. Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.

    I love your background, everything is gorgeous on this card! Fabulous card Shirl, and I love the two stamps too, I think I have the little boy and will try to use it for my Christmas makes (not yet started argh!!), it’s really a lovely stamp!
    Take care, I will come again to admire your awesome works as soon as possible (still trying to do a bit of catch-up but slowly.. I’m just overwhelmed) Hugs Coco xxx

  5. I think it’s those touches of white alongside the black stamping and beautiful colours that make this so effective Shirl. Love it! Jenny x
