Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #25 - Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas

Perfect Plum Card #3


Two posts in one day!?...yes, I've been busy....and there still may be a third yet!...stay tuned....

I made this card for my Color Coach Challenge. The Color Coach card for Perfect Plum suggests Perfect Plum, Marina Mist and Rose Red as a colour combination....when I first saw this I thought maybe a baby card?....or a soft Mother's Day card??....but Pinterest seems to be all the rage with non-traditional Christmas Cards right now so I thought I would throw the festive spirit at it instead. :)

This fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch provided good inspiration!

The stamp set that I've used is sadly retired, but Joy to the World from the current Holiday catalogue  (Wood 131796 $37.95 AUD or  Clear 131799 $29.95 AUD) would be a perfect substitute! 

If you like this card and are inspired by it to make your own, then support my business & creativity and purchase your craft supplies at my online store. :)
