CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge 248

Samantha is the mastermind behind November's CC&S challenges and she has a colour challenge for us this week using Emerald Envy, Metallic Silver, and Tranquil Tide.  Without any of the inks, no silver paper, and only Tranquil Tide in my paper stash, this color combination had me stumped.  As I went through my collection of supplies, I spotted the wreath embossing folder and then settled on making a Christmas card.  I hunted through my embossing powders and found pewter to pair with the Technique Tuesday sentiment, used my G16 Copic on the leaves to highlight the dimension.  Three sequins and some silver and white twine finished off the card.

Take a peek at the DT inspiration HERE and then play along with us this week.  Can't wait to see where this combination takes you!

Challenges Entered:
