Christmas Stampin All Year Long...Challenge #5

First of all...Happy Monday all! Well here we are, already on our fifth challenge of the year for "CSAYL". My, how this year is just moving along. For this round, Maria not only challenged the blog team with a sketch but...a color combo in addition. Which I thought was so cool. Here is the sketch we were all challenged with and the color combo is...pink, purple, & blue.

Below is my take on this challenge. This too was kinda a really quick, last minute rush job. The image, DS paper, CS, and scallop punch are all from Stampin' Up. I also used a CB embossing folder and some lavender gem stones, to top off.

The gem stones actually added a nice touch to the card, IRL. Here's a close up view. Don't forget to hop on over and check out the rest of the team's creations for this challenge. While there come along and play! Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate you and your sweet comments and encouragement. Have a wonderful day in Jesus!
