And here is what I came up with for these colors:
For this challenge I used the Christmas Tree Chick image and matched her up with the Eskimo Kisses papers from Basic Grey. The color seems a bit off in the picture, and unfortunately her top looks a bit on the orange side while IRL it really is more of a coral color. I cut out the image with my new Nesties Labels 1 (I came across a great sale last week and ordered the Labels sets 1-4 and the fancy tags set as well). And I tried something new again and made my very first Easel Card. I was intimidated by the thought of making one of these, but it was so easy to do! The little extra effort it takes transforms an ordinary card into a stunning display. I will definitely be making more of this style card for the upcoming holiday season.
I kept the inside fairly simple and instead of using an embellishment to hold the card open, I put the sentiment on dimensionals instead.
