ColourQ | Challenge #166

I have one more card to share today, this one for ColourQ's Challenge #166. I pulled out Wplus9's Folk Art Flurries (again!) and four shades of blue: 

 

I don't have Cool Caribbean, so I substituted Stampin' Up's Pool Party ink + paper. 

I also pulled out Papertrey Ink's Framed stamp set for the first time. When this set was released last year, I fell in love with it and purchased it right away. But I have had the hardest time using it! It just never worked the way I wanted it to. I am so happy it worked for this card! I used an acrylic block with a grid on it to line up the rectangle + sentiment, and used Midnight Muse ink. The background cardstock is Bazzill's Swiss Dot, which matches the Midnight Muse ink perfectly:

 (Supplies - Stamps: (Wplus9) Folk Art Flurries, (PTI) Framed, Peaceful Pinecones. Ink: (Stampin' Up1) Midnight Muse, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party. Cardstock: (Stampin' Up!) Pool Party, Whisper White. (Bazzill) Blue Swiss Dot. Other: White ribbon, white pearls.)

More beautiful snowflakes & a lovely color combo. I love making Christmas/holiday cards!

I am also entering this card in CAS-ual Fridays Knotty or Nice challenge

See you next week!

You did a great job working those colors together. The texture of the Swiss dot paper complements the snowflakes adorned in their pearls. And the frame stamp adds the perfect definition to your flurries.
