Whiff of Joy Challenge #53 --- Red, Cream and ?

The Whiff of Joy Challenge this week is to use the colors RED and CREAM plus ONE MORE COLOR. So I chose one of my favorite Whiff of Joy images and colored her with Copics R59 Cardinal Red, YR21 Cream, and YG95 Pale Olive. This combination was a beautiful match for the K&Company Christmas Cheer papers. I love the subdued colors in this collection and the scrapbook sized papers have designs perfect for cutting and pasting onto cards.

I cut out the holly from a corner of the dp and placed it on the background piece. I used another holly piece for the Nestibilities Large Label 4 then set that on an XL Label 4 in red. A strip of ribbon provides a perch for Willow. Embellishments include poinsettias and white flowers from Prima, ruby jewels and a sentiment cut from the dp.

I liked working with these colors and they just might show up again as I work through this stack of gorgeous Christmas papers.

WOJ is growing! If you haven't seen the new Christmas Gnome stamps click here!! WOJ has a very talented new illustrator, Norma Fickel, and her adorable gnomes are a must-have!

The weekend is here and I hope you all have a chance to create, rest, and spend time with those you love, not necessarily in that order!
