Aqua & Red Inspiration

I did a little blog decorating for the holidays this weekend. I love the color combination in my blog banner and I felt inspired to make a Christmas card with the same colors:


These colors just make me happy! I absolutely love the new Aqua Mist pigment formulation by Papertrey Ink. It's soft, yet you definitely know its there. And I couldn't resist adding some embellishments to jazz it up, and since the tag says Merry & Bright...bring on the rhinestones and button!


So, are you catching the Papertrey Ink sneak peeks on Nichole's blog? It looks like we're getting ready for our next crafty holiday! And don't forget, I'll be sharing my Click Simple sneak peek here on my blog later in the week. You don't want to miss a sneak at the new, innovative templates by Papertrey Ink!










Stamps: Snowfall, Signature Christmas, Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist (PTI)
Ink: Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Other: Pure Poppy vintage button (PTI), Aqua Mist luxe satin ribbon (PTI), foam mounting tape (3M), adhesive rhinestones (KaiserCrafts), tiny tag die for Cuttlebug (ProvoCraft), red twine, fancy scalloped border die (Spellbinders)
