CYCI#99 Favorite Christmas Colors

Hey... have you ever wondered what everyone's favorite Christmas colors where?
Well so did we! has the best challenge this week,
share a card with your favorite color combo for Christmas! 

My favorite is wintery blues and bright greens! Taking back old school today!
I remember as a kid, my Tia, had these glass ornaments  in Ice blue, Turquoise, and bright greens. She had the basics too, Gold, and Silver. But that combo always reminds me of the incredible times I had growing up, and visiting her house!

Today I'm doing a simple watercolor wash and some sparkle with a touch of wonder!
My stamp comes from Fun Stampers Journey, it's called Merry and Bright! I fell in love with this stamp back in October and waited... a long long long time to use! lol...
In crafty time that was forever!

I've got my Zig Clean Color Real Brush and I did the main part of coloring, in 031, 040, 041 and 091
Then I did my splatter with my Gold Wink of Stella. Then I used a dash of  Heidi Swapp White Color Shine and Mr Huey's White for a bit of a snow effect, the two together make a for an awesome combo!
After drying with my heat tool, I ran my wc cardstock through the big shot with the cutest dies ever!!! Craftin Desert Divas has their line of dies, and I recently purchased their Fancy Frames! Its so awesome!
The final touch was to add some thread in Black to give my card a cute bow!

don't forget to check out and our challenge this week!

Until next time,
