Catch The Bug Mini Challenges

Non-Tradition Christmas Colors.

Monday already, the week-end just flew by!  Today’s the first of our Christmas In July mini challenges at Catch The Bug, and we want to see a card/project made with non-tradition Christmas colors.  We have daily prizes and we have weekly prizes. To be eligible for the weekly prizes you must participate in each of the daily challenges according to the recipe. The daily prize winners will be chosen from that days challenge.  So you may create ahead of time but must submit your project on the day of the event!  Good luck!

JJ Ornament

My non-tradition Christmas colors are “Pink and Turquoise”, and I’ve used “J.J. Ornament”.  I colored the image with Copics, then cut her out and layered her on the round and scalloped Spellbinder dies.  The little bit of designer paper is by Kaiser Craft - Christmas Carnival.  I also used a Martha Stewart border and corner punch to make the pink frame.
