Merry Monday Challenge Week #48

Hello & Happy Monday!

Time for another Merry Monday Challenge from Lesley at Always Playing With Paper! This week she gave us a color challenge and I love my card but I have to say I struggled a bit!
Here are the colors and my card....



I truely think it was the Pumpkin Pie color that kept throwing me off. It's just not a Christmas color. I went looking & looking thru my million & one stamps then it hit me to use this sweet little penguin from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I was able to get all 3 colors within this one little image. I added the sentiment and some Pumpkin Pie 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon and called it done. Did anyone else struggle with these colors?


Merry Monday Challenge Week #48 Card:

Stamps: Sweet n Sassy Stamps, Sentiment from Micheal's $1 Stamp
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Neenah White, Basic Gray

Hope you can stop by Lesley's blog and see what the other Merry Makers have created this week! Their cards are awesome!

Well, that is all for me today!
It was a late nite last night with the Super Bowl and I didn't get to bed till about 1 AM. I overslept this morning that's why the late blog update this morning but happy the Ravens won! WooHoo!
Time to get this day started!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
