Card Concept Challenge #42

Hi Everyone!  Time has flown by and we have another Card Concept Challenge for you.  This time we have a color challenge. Of course you can use the beautiful photo as inspiration too.




I used the colors to create my Clean & Simple holiday card.



I die cut the Pine Border Outline die from Scarlet Jewel Bitty Dots paper and also Early Espresso paper. I also cut it out of the vanilla paper so that the trees would be inset.  To keep the tree pieces in place I glued a scrap piece of paper on the backside of the panel. It was a bit tricky getting all the little pieces put back in but I really like the final result and I think by insetting the trees I keep that CAS look. 




Lastly I layered a thin strip of Baroque Burgundy along the bottom, added the sentiment and wrapped the pink twine around. This whole panel is popped up on dimensionals on the base card. 

Check out the rest of the Design Team's cards and get to work on the challenge. We love to see all your work!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
