Comfort & Joy

It seems kind of crazy making a wintery-themed card when it's almost 90 degrees outside! This is the craziest 'fall' I've ever seen!

I combined last week's Splitcoast color challenge and sketch challenge for this card. I love the combo! Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip & River Rock! Actually, I loved it so much I've been thinking about doing the boy's bathroom in these colors. And... you'll be seeing several more cards in this color scheme this week (I just couldn't help myself!) :)

The Christmas tree stamp is by Rubber Soul called 'Tree Extravaganza' and the sentiment is from their 'Winter Wonderland' set. I love it's little crooked top! I just stamped the tree in brown and added a smidget of color to the needles with chalk.

I used my new Cuttlebug embossing folder to add a little texture. I think I'm going to make several of these! I love the simplicity of it and the way the colors come together!
