Colour Dare 271 - Happy Ho Ho Ho to You

Welcome to another challenge at Colour Dare! This week, it's all about Beary Christmas colours. If you happen to have the Beary Christmas paper pack, that makes it really easy as all the colours are taken from that paper package. If not, the basic Christmas colours are pretty standard and easily found. 
We ask that you use at least three colours from the palette including neutrals. There are MANY from which to choose!

I found a stunning Christmas card on Pinterest but unfortunately, the link didn't lead to a specific gallery and the card was not watermarked so I can't tell who was the creator. I pretty much CASEd this gorgeous card because it was perfect for these colours and I loved the design. 

I used only the Cranberry and New England Ivy papers from the Beary Christmas paper pack along with White Daisy cardstock. I did use a tiny bit of Cranberry cardstock for the leaves in the corner.  The background for the sentiment was sponged using Cranberry ink and the sentiment was stamped using both Fern and New England Ivy. I dug out some very old Cranberry grosgrain ribbon and I love  the effect it adds to the card. 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use some or all of the colours in this palette.
This challenge is open until Thursday, December 7 at 10pm EST. 

Our last two challenges are extra special Christmas challenges - more about that shortly so stay posted :)
