What is your favorite color?

Good Morning everyone! While you are reading this I am probably sitting drinking a cup of hot tea and watching the deer walk thru the backyard at our camp. This week is the Autumn Leaf festival so we are spending a couple of days in Clarion to visit our nephews at college and wander around enjoying the sights.

Ok, enough blathering. The challenge this week at Paper Sundaes is to use your favorite color combination and we are being sponsored by Letraset. Now I have to say I had a bit of a problem with this challenge cause I don't really have a favorite color combo. I sort of have a favorite of the day or whatever colors suit my mood at the time but I have always loved pink and green so that is what I used.


My image is by LOTV, the silver corners are by WOC and the sentiment is from my friend Elaine. (they stamp really well Elaine!). I embossed a doily background with some silver powder for behind the sentiment, some MS punched snowflakes and some little pearl button snowflakes for in the center of them that I clipped the back off of. For some reason my matting papers look red here but they are a deep rose color to match the dp. Alright, our challenge participation has been great so let's keep the ball rolling!

I am entering this card into the following challenge
LOTV   let it snow
