StampTV CSS color challenge hop

 Hallo,
   Welcome to another Gina K CSS alumni blog hop!! This time we are doing a color challenge - and I have to admit that I was almost shut out on this one :) it truly was a challenge but I think I may have squeaked by :)
  The challenge colors are - dark chocolate,' tomato soup', 'honey mustard' and  ;in the navy' - with ivory as a neutral.
  You may have come to me from Miesje - http://miesdf.blogspot.com/2013/11/css-color-challenge-blog-hop-11-12-2013.html
And I am sure she had an easier time with this challenge than me  - can't wait till I see what everyone else on the hop did - I will probably be slapping my head and saying why didn't I think of that :)
 I decided finally to do a Christmas card since I am way behind getting a bunch done, and then just had to decide how to combine the colors....the navy threw me off the most, I don't often do navy with red unless its a patriotic card....
  So I colored the poinsettias from Melanies' "A year of borders" and that is the only spot that the 'honey mustard' and 'dark chocolate' come into play - except a bit on the DP in the first one.....
  I colored the poinsettias with prismacolor pencils - ended up doing one in blue and one in red....then couldn't find a die cut I that would work for me...so I just cut them out by hand and layered them to a fancy Spellbinders die cut.
  I stamped the Merry Christmas - from 'Seasonal Sayings' and added some bling and tiny Christmas bows I found whilst rummaging through my stash and I am as done as can be for this challenge :)
  The red cardstock in the last of my current Gina K designs pure luxury  cardstock - I have been hoarding the red - tomato soup red :)
  I do believe that I am last on the hop list this time so I hope you had a good time - join us and see what you can come up with !!!
  Off to work I go - Have a great night!!!!

You did a great job with the color challenge, Tera! I love the cards you made, especially the one with the little blue bow on it! Fun holiday cards -- gotta get going on mine!

Two wonderful Christmas cards, Tera! You did a great job with the color combo! I am thinking that I may not get all my Christmas cards made this time around.

Great start for your Christmas cards. This would make a gorgeous tag for a present with the little bow on it if you just use the die cut and I'll probably CASE part of your idea.
