Happy New Year! New Color Combo #139



Color Combos Galore is back!  Janet’s son received a Christmas card which inspired this week’s color combo:  blue skies, misty blue, tranquil green, and toasted olive.   I added just a touch of red in my interpretation.  The pictures were taken on our first Snow Day of the year, during the first week in December.  We don’t get many snow days as we live in California, but this Snow Day turned into two official Snow Days which hasn’t happened since we’ve lived in Jackson.  The snow stayed on the ground for nearly a week.  We used these days to play in the snow, decorate our Christmas tree, introduce snow to our puppies, and we kept warm by drinking lots of hot chocolate and baking Christmas cookies.  I used my Cuttlebug to die cut a vinyl snowflake, some quilted-back snow balls, and embossed these snowballs as well.  Then I used the Winter Woodland, When It’s Cold Outside, and Snow Friends Cricut Cartridges, to help make the title which was welded and brainstormed in Cricut DesignStudio.  The title was drawn first using the basic brown Cricut color pen, then cut out, and layered with the cuts.  A light blue Cricut color pen was used on the snowflake as well.   The blanket stitch, snowflake stitches, and buttons were added using my Singer Futura. 

If you want to participate in the color challenge, follow the link to Color Combos Galore and post your layouts there. Make sure you label your layouts with the color combination number.
