The Paper Players Challenge 75

Tonight I worked on a card for The Paper Players Challenge # 75.   The object is to create a holiday project using non-holiday stamps or colors. 

I chose to pull out some retired colors and stamp sets for this challenge that I really love and use them to create a holiday card with a non-traditional color palette.  I also applied a couple of techniques to the card - heat embossing and paper piercing.   Here is my entry:

Card Ingredients:

CS:  Pacific Point, Pale Plum, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Ink:  Pale Plum, Baja Breeze, Versa Mark
Stamp Sets:  Snow Burst, Lots of Thoughts

Accessories:  heat tool, white embossing powder, circle punches, snowflake brad, kiwi kiss ribbon, paper piercing tool, dimensionals, basic rhinestones, snail adhesive, sticky strip

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  For more inspiration, be sure to check out the design team's samples.
