JUGS215 AWEsome Color Challenge!!

                                                                                 
Hi there!!  The Just Us Girls team has a great color challenge for you this week!!  Below is a graphic made by Lisa to give you ideas!!  We saw red, kraft, white and chocolate brown in these cute pics! You can visit the JUGS blog for loads of inspiration!
                                                   

                                                                         And, here is my card!  It opens at the bottom.  That seems to be a favorite style of mine lately!  I used a kraft card base, then a layer of cherry cobbler.  The final two layers are some older Cosmo Cricket papers.  I ran the brown sheet through my Calibur in the snowflake folder.  My stamp is Whipper Snapper Designs A Snowman's Mitten.
My snowman is stamped on water color paper and then colored with distress markers. After that I watercolored  the image with a water brush.  I think the mitten came out looking like wool!  A happy accident! I cut the image with a spellbinder's die.  The next size die was too big, so I just traced the metal die itself and traced it on cherry cobbler and cut out for a size that is about 1/8" bigger. I raised the focal image on dimensionals.  then I decided I wanted a bow of some kind so I had to thread my twine through the dimensionals.  That was tricky!  I had red and white twine but colored the white parts (as best I could) with the tea dye marker.  I did add stickles here and there for sparkle.
Please enter your creation with these colors this week!  We'd love to see what you come up with!!
And, thanks for coming!! Cheryl

Greetings from Buffalo, NY! Cheryl, this card took my breath away as soon as I saw it! Just love your coloring, the card colors and what's not to love about a Whipper Snapper image?! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity! Since I live in your area, I was wondering if you offer any types of classes? If so, I'd be there in a heartbeat!
