Tell Me What U Think

Happy Hellos Everyone:

This evening, I sat down at my craft table to work on my lastest holiday card and as I began to create a few thoughts came to me. I began wondering whether or not to use the traditional colors of the season--red & green verses my traditional colors purple & green. Then I thought, I've already used both, so perhaps I should try another color combination. From there I began to second guess the layout and the embellishments, and so forth. Needless to say, I completed the card, but that brings me to the one or two questions I have for you. How often do you second guess/hesitate when it comes to making cards or scrapbooking? Or, do you use layouts from others? What's your favorite colors and/or theme to use when creating holiday cards?

If you're wondering how I accomplished this effect or what I used--well, wonder no more. The cardstocks I used is Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake from SU; DP is Jovial from Basic Grey; Ribbon is from Prairie Bird Boutique; Spellbinders Nestabilities--Labels Four; the sentiment is First Gift stamp from Stampendous; vintage pin from Maya Road; and Tim Holtz distressing inks.

I hope you enjoy what's left of your holiday. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

I love your card! Personally, I like the traditional colors, but I try to come up with cards with my personal favs of purple and gold (or silver) to match my holiday decor each year too!

This is a beautiful card. I love how the bow fits right in with the poinsettia image on your background. And do I second guess in designing, or colors - you bet! I usually pull colors from the pattern paper I'm using to help me create. My favorite holiday colors are deep crimson red and dark green with lots of glitter!
