Jingle All the Way

Hi, Friends......

I am here with another card for the Winnie & Winnie March Color Combo Challenge. Hope you are not tired of seeing the lovely palette we are using this month, because here it is again.
I've gone a little crazy using these colors because pink and purple are my faves!! 💓💜💓💜💓💜

This time I broke out of the spring color motifs and saw........... Christmas colors!! 

I stamped a background using elements from the Winnie & Walter - Comfort + Joy stamp set. I used Distress Inks which don't always stamp perfectly with solid images....but I am really into the arty look of some of the white showing in the bells and stars for a retro, kind of graphic print style look. 

I wanted to keep the sentiment very simple to not draw attention away from my fun background, but it had to be bold enough to hold its own, too. I glued two of the purple Happy die cuts together for more bulk and added a single matted "holidays" to it. I think it is just right.

Do you like how I curved the green word phrases around the images???? I love how that turned out!!

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - Comfort + Joy stamp set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy stamp set
Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, and Peeled Paint
Core'dinations/Darice solid cardstock and scraps

Hope you enjoyed my card in non-traditional colors. It was so fun to get creative and think outside the box with these colors and images. Thank you for stopping by today!!
