Wow it got cold last night. Jess and I both have had a hard time warming up today. I had a photo from my friend in Chicago and she had snow on Saturday. We were not that cold today as the sun was shining which helped. I would love to have snow for Christmas but our chances are very slim.
I had not played with some challenges lately so checked out the blogs to see what I could find. I found a color challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches
I decided to use an idea I saw in one of my Facebook groups where they use vellum. I pulled out the October Paper Pumpkin to use the image as it can look like a poinsettia. I stamped my image on the vellum in Memento Black and colored the back with the Watermelon Wonder marker. I added some sparkle by using my clear star gelly roll pen to the stamen. I cut them out and determined where they would be on the front of my card. I stamped the leaf sprays strategically based on where the flowers would be. I wanted something in the upper right hand corner so I pulled out my embossing folder – Lucky Stars – and just embossed the upper corner. To use the Metallic Silver in the color challenge I pulled out my metallic thread. Here is what my creation looked like.

Thanks for visiting me today. I will be preparing for a class tonight but I will also take some time to play! Have a Terrific Tuesday!
