Christmas Card Challenge # 7 - Color.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
It's a very sunny day here and I hope it means spring is coming soon!
 
But we have a Christmas Challenge to talk about and it's a very wintry one!
 
 
Colors!

 
While making the card colors seemed to me more light browns than greys, that's why I made this card:

 
I then looked at some of my teamies cards and noticed they used greys... so I'm sorry if it does not match (but I still see creams and light browns...).
 
Anyway, I chose these cute birds from Doodle Pantry and a background paper from First Edition.
They are so sweet!
 
Have a look here to see the (grey) cards of my teamies and last week's winner and Top 3.
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge: C is for Creatures (and D for dimension)
Winter Wonderland Challenge: Anything Christmas Goes

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for February - Mid-Month Inspiration.

Good morning and welcome to our mid-month post for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!
 
I have a new card to show you:
 
 
I chose and old stamp from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps and colored it with Copics and glitter.
I found a piece of patterned paper in my stash (sorry, I don't remember the brand) and positioned it behind the gingerbread.
 
A quick and easy make for a super-sweet card!
 
Have a look here if you need more inspiration!

I've kept a card to show you today to celebrate Valentine's Day:
 
 
This adorable little pig is Piggy from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I received it as I took part in their January Challenge (but it's available in the shop in case you are interested).
I decided to make a small card with pinks and reds (background paper is from Doodlebug) and a big heart behind this cute little pig.
 
Hope you have a lovely day!

February already... so I decided to make a very romantic card, with two adorable cats:
