Christmas Stamping All Year Long! Colour Challenge

Well! Here I am , the hostess with the Mostest this week!!! The Mostest what, I am not sure, but it sounded kinda catchy, don't ya think???

This challenge was really Simple! Create a card using Traditional Christmas Colours-Green, Red and a splash of Silver or Gold..............remember the Christmas Song Silver and Gold??? Yep, love hearing the voiceover of Johnny Marks (who the heck is HE?? I always thought it was Burl Ives singing it, but I guess he was just the voice of the Snow Man, in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Silver and gold, silver and gold Ev'ryone wishes for silver and gold How do you measure its worth? Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
Silver and gold, silver and gold Mean so much more when I see Silver and gold decorations On ev'ry Christmas tree.


What's a Christmas tree without tinsel and pretty silver and gold decorations? Can't really call it a Christmas tree now, can you? And think of all the fun and joy that would be lost on Christmas morning if all the young folks didn't get to see that sparkling happy tree.

Silver and gold, silver and gold Mean so much more when I see Silver and gold decorations On ev'ry Christmas tree.

Anyway, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that song!!!

I used this cute image from Big Celebrations, a retired set from SU! The DP is Scenic Route and the Base is Kiwi Kiss. I was so sad when SU! retired this colour!!!! Ribbon is also from SU! The Sentiment Chipboard is from Scenic Route!

Maria has posted a great sketch to go along with this challenge if you choose. Check out the CSAYL Blog to see what the Design Diva's have created and add a link for your creation!

Happy Stamping!
