Colour Challenge at Chocolate Baroque

Hello everyone I hope you are doing well and having a great summer.

I'm showing a card today that I designed for Chocolate Baroque's wonderful new Colour Challenge Blog.  Each month there will be a new colour theme and a chance to win a Chocolate Baroque gift card.      The challenges will start on the 3rd Wednesday of each month,  please visit Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge Blog for all the details.

Since I've been in Christmas card 'mode' I decided to create a Christmas card in non-traditional colours for this month's challenge:


Chocolate Baroque stamps used:  Snowflake Flourish and Steampunk Christmas.

There is a step by step explanation of how I created this card over at Chocolate Baroque's Challenge Blog.   We would love it if you could join in the fun !

Here is the colour inspiration photo from Chocolate Baroque:


Thanks for your visit,
Shirley
