A Christmas colour combo :-)

Our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar was picked by our talented designer Camilla. Camilla has challenged us to a colour combo... with a twist! You have to have brown as your basic colour, then you can choose either pink or blue to go with the brown. As you can see I went for the brown and blue option but just couldn't help myself by adding a little pink too ;-)

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Denise from Whimsy stamps. One lucky player this week will win one of the new Crissy armstrong stamps which was released at the beginning of the month - Jolly Puppy Kisses.

My card is also for our challenge over at the Scrapmagasinet DT blog where our topic is all about Christmas. A nice easy challenge so no excuses not to join in :-) You don't own any Scrapmagasinet stamps.? I have a great selection in my store.

You won't want to miss out on entering our challenge this week anyway as you could win the cool set Girl Power!!!. I love this set!!!

Ok, I couldn't help myself and my card is also using Jeanette's fabulous sketch this week over at Friday Sketchers!!!

Be sure to check out the wonderful inspiration from the girls over at A Spoon Full of Sugar and Scrapmagasinet.
