Chocolate & Roses

No, I didn't get any Chocolate & Roses today - that's the challenge over at CSAYL. We are to make a Christmas card using the colors BROWN (chocolate) and RED or PINK (Roses). I took the challenge a step further...



Yes that is blue in there BUT my main colors are RED and BROWN plus I added GREEN which would be on Roses as well :) When we got the challenge of Chocolate and Roses I couldn't get flowers out of my head. Therefore, I had to have the main focus be the flowers.


I didn't do any stamping on this card. The sentiment is actually a rub-on. I used the Clean and Simple's Fall to Layout 91 for this card - I like how the focus is the flowers. PLUS it was super fast to make which is good cause I whipped out a few more...woohoo for the Christmas card stash :)


Whatcha think? I hope you'll play along! You know it's never too early to start working on those holiday cards and isn't JULY right around the corner?!? Before you know it we'll start seeing decorations in the store...Heaven help us!


Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget that we're having a SOFTPENCIL blog hop until Sunday evening...you can see all the details HERE. Also, I'd like to ask for your prayers...my Dad is having some health issues and is in a lot of pain. I'm afraid that it's just the beginning and things will get worse. Plus Abby hasn't been feeling the best and today it was worse. SO I could use your prayers if you'd be so inclined!! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
