I have exactly three more Christmas cards to make - my 21-year old son and my two tween/teen nieces. I have to admit to being somewhat out of ideas for all of them. For one of my nieces, I wanted to use the Mama Elephant Snow Much Love die but I wasn't sure what to do with it. They are both too old for cutesy, but too young for serious. When I saw this week's challenge at the Color Throwdown - specifically the colorful graphic - a light bulb came on.

Color Throwdown: Snow Much Love
I did get carried away because the challenge was really only three colors from the graphic - and I kind of used them all. I probably shouldn't be posting, but this was definitely my inspiration and I always try to give credit!
It's such a terrible time to take photos. The sun is too low in the sky to hit my craft room window and although I have a decent artificial light, it can wash out the detail. The sentiment on my card is actually very glittery paper. The glitter and the colors will be just perfect for teen/tween niece!!
I have so many more Christmas stamps and dies to use, but I'm kind of burning out. It's getting time to relax and enjoy the peace of the season. I do have a start on a card for my 21-year old and I have a stamp picked out for my other niece so I'm almost there!! It is fun that Christmas card challenges run all year long so I'm not putting those unused stamps and dies too far away.
