Digital-Ink Co. (DIC009) Color Challenge

Good MONDAY Morning Everyone!!!

It's time for another fun challenge over on the Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog. Today's challenge is to use these colors in your creation:

And, we're changing thing up a bit with the DT. Beginning today, each member will be creating using a different Creator's images ... that way you get a little taste of what's available through our creators over at the Digital Ink Co Shoppe. Be sure to check them out .... I have NO doubt you will find something you will love!! Another new element to our fun challenge blog is the addition of GUEST DESIGNER'S each month. For the month of November we have TWO wonderfully talented ladies to share their inspirations.

Please meet Linda, (Linda's Crafty Creations) and Terri (Terri's Cards N' More). We are thrilled to have these two ladies join us and can't wait to see what they have to share with all of us!!! Please be sure to pop on over to their blogs and show them some "blogger love" with your comments!

Now on to today's creation ...

I didn't seem to have any designer paper that would fit this color combination so I decided to create my own using the appropriate colors and sponge pods ... swiped across whisper white cardstock. The creator I am showcasing today is REECE'S DESIGNS ... isn't this adorable little "Beary Christmas" Bear sweet!! Be sure to click the link provided to see ALL of April's wonderful digi stamps available for purchase at our SHOPPE.

I always feel bad for those children who are born on CHRISTMAS ... it seems their BIRTHDAY never gets recognized like other children's due to the holidays. I have a friend ... her name is NOEL ... guess what day she was born, teehee!! I thought I'd send her a special little card this year! So it was with NOEL in mind that I created this card.

Please come join in on the fun! And, when you do, be sure to upload your DIRECT LINK to Mr. Linky over on the ChallengeBlog. If you are uploading to other online galleries (SCS, PCP, SNR), please use the keyword DIC009. The week's lucky winner will receive this awesome digi from WHIMSY DESIGN STUDIO.

Recipe for today's creation:
Stamps: Stamp Craft (Happy Birthday), Inkadinkado (Christmas), Fiskars (Baby)
Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Pirouette, Rose Romance, Versafine Black
Accessories: Spellbinder Nestabililities (Classic Circles), Small Sponge Pods, Prisma Pencils, Gamsol, Kaiser pearls, Holly charm (Joann's)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you will come join us at Digital Ink Co for some fun and I also hope you have a WONDERFUL week! Enjoy your day ... whatever you may be doing!!

This card is too cute Darlene, Noel is going to love it! My brother's birthday is Dec. 2nd, not close to Christmas, but he had to deal with the same thing growing, we give him his cards or gifts when we see him on Thanksgiving...he always has to 'share' his birthday!

You did a fabulous coloring job hun, and I love that lil sprig of holly above that sentiment!
