Black, Crumb, Vanilla -- CCMC124

11/17/2010 Edited to add -- This card was one of the CCMC124 top 3 picks. CLICK HERE to check out the other top picks.


Today, I'm showing you a card I made for the CCMC124 Color Challenge. We need to use Basic Black, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla. My first thought was "elegant" when I looked at the fabric sample and the design team creations. But I just couldn't get anything to work out in my mind. Mainly because I kept thinking of "Over the hill" birthday cards! So I went ahead and made my borther's 40th birthday card :-) Now, you'll just have to wait to see it because I kept thinking about the "elegant" aspect last night, and I had some extra time this morning. So I made a Christmas card -- I can never have enough of those! I'm pleased with the subtle elegance of this card. And since I switched back to a Christmas card, this also qualifies for the JAI43 Just Add Christmas Challenge.

I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!
