A COLOR CHALLENGE THIS WEEK...



RED AND GREEN AND WHITE is the requirement for the Design Team at STAMP-N-DOODLE and for this week's Challenge.  I wanted to take on something a little different for my DT card, so I chose a template style.  Be sure to pop over and enter STAMP-N-DOODLE'S challenge and look at the other Designer's cards!  It should be a goodie week, given Christmas offers lots of options for this  color challenge!

Please click to enlarge the card to see the details
The angle of the card was beyond my Photography skills!











Being on Design Teams, I won't lie, presents a challenge to me;                             being naturally extremely "Bohemian", I have had to *ahem* pull in the reigns in order to take on my 'own' challenge and design for different companies.  It has been wonderful, frustrating, challenging, exciting but most of all a transformational experience I continue to be thankful for.  So here's to you! Thank you to the companies who use my art.
