Festive Friday Challenge

Hi there!

Today I am super excited to be Guest Designing for the Festive Friday Challenge! The challenge for this week is a color challenge. I couldn't be happier with what Meredith picked for me - one of my favorite holiday combos: red, white, and aqua.

Even though it was the day we were moving, I couldn't resist jumping on the new Wplus9 release. To make up for not actually being able to use them right away, I spent a lot of time planning how I could use these sets for the challenge. :)

Simple and sweet. For my projects, I used the Silver Bells stamp set and coordinating dies. I am a big fan of all the little accent bits that Dawn includes in her sets. I love the little bits of greenery tucked behind the bells.

It all started with a cute little tag that came together easily with pops of red and aqua.

And then (since I didn't want Meredith to think I was a slacker for just making a little tag ;) I made a coordinating card.

Sweetness. In love with this set.

The Festive Friday Challenge is open for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to squeeze in a little cardmaking fun. Please head back to the Festive Friday blog to find all the challenge details, be inspired by the amazing (!) design team, and link up your project.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day!
