Paper Players Challenge #28

It's that time again!! This will be the final challenge for the year on The Paper Players - so really make it count! For this challenge it's your choice of Favorite Color Combos for a particular card type. What screams "Christmas" for you? Or "sympathy"? Or "birthday"? Or "anniversary"? Pick your favorite color combos for a particular type of card and link up with us this week. Easy peasy!!

I would like to once again thank Lesley and the Paper Players Design Team for welcoming me back again this month as a Guest Designer!! It's always an honor to be asked to join a team. Having others acknowledge and appreciate your work really makes the time spent on projects very rewarding. These ladies have be doing this for a lot longer than I have, and their acceptance of my work has been thrilling. Thanks so much, Girls!!

My card this week:
Believe it or not in this very pink castle....my favorite color is actually yellow, lol! I love shades of yellow together the most - so warm, happy and inviting! So my color combo is shades of yellow (More Mustard, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron) for a friendship card. I also love monochromatic cards (same color family only on a card), as well as combinations of embossing.

Recipe:
Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: More Mustard, So Saffron
Ink: More Mustard
Accessories: Daffodil Delight ribbon & button, glue dots, clear embossing powder, dimensionals, sq. lattice embossing folder

I'm thinking red and green for Christmas but gold is definitely classier.
