In Style Stamps Color Challenge

I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!  Today we have a color challenge for you on the InStyle Stamps Club Anime blog.  Here is our inspiration picture this month:

 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.

Head on over to the InStyle Stamps Club Anime blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing creations.  We would love to have you join us in November's color challenge.  You have an entire month to play, and by entering your creation, you could win a $20 gift certificate to InStyle Stamps ~ how great is that!?!
