Creative Confetti: Nature's Christmas Colors

Happy Tuesday everyone! Are you ready for a new Creative Confetti Challenge? I'm Lisa Johansen and I'm back to get creative with you all again!

I love Christmas and everything it has to offer but I'm pretty traditional and usually use a lot of red and green on my holiday projects. I need to push myself to break out of that mold and try different color combinations and that's how this weeks challenge came about.




HOW TO PLAY: Use the colors in the graphic above -- nautical blue, evergreen, and silvery gray -- to create a Christmas project! Maybe you are inspired to create a snowy night scene with one of the newly released digital images? Perhaps the dark green makes you think of a beautiful Christmas tree? Whatever Christmas adventure these colors take you on, make sure and link up your creation using the linky below and you'll be in the running for a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! The link is LIVE all month long, meaning, the more you play, the better your chances!

On to my card....




For my card I used the Bough Wow Wow clear set. I just love this set and 2 the different boughs in it. I went with the bough with the ribbon and mittens on it, as that is totally something I'd have hanging on my front door!

Blue and green are actually my favorite colors, I just don't generally use them together for Christmas. For this image I decided to make the mittens blue, the ribbon gray and of course I colored the greenery with my green markers. I did add a small pop of red with the heart but you can see that blue and green are the primary colors. I also used silver Stickles on the fuzzy snow puffs to add some more gray to the mix.

I'm excited to see what everyone does with these colors but most of all, just have fun!


BEFORE I LET YOU GO, HERE'S A QUICK NOTE FROM JULIE!

With all the excitement in last week's Christmas Remix release, I plum forgot to draw a winner for November and put up the new linky! Sheesh! Sorry about that peeps! The new link is below! Please note, since December 31st falls on a Tuesday, I'll open the January link up a day early and announce the winner then! 

Moving on to November's winner! After all the entries were thrown into the virtual hat, Random.org drew.... 

And that means the winner is.....
