Fab Friday 22 & Sneak Peek

Hmm… let’s see what day is today?! Ahh yes… it’s FRIDAY!!!! My absolute favorite day of the week! Busy weekend ahead, block party with the peeps, major crafting to be done too! It was sort of gloomy here yesterday with the occasional rain shower. Today promises more of the same and maybe some for tomorrow too. Let’s hope not!

Today being Friday is made even more awesome because it’s Fab Friday! This time we have a color challenge for you…

Fab Fri 22 Colors 7-12-2013

When I saw the colors the last thing I thought of was a Christmas card but that’s what appeared! The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Tempting Turquoise with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The stamped Subway style greeting and the Basic Gray star banner are form the O Holy Night Stamp Set*. I Flagged the piece of Whisper White and ran a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper down each side. Across the top is a piece of “Vintage” Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon. I added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details for a little, well, sparkle! It’s a nice simple card with non-traditional colors that would be easy to make a bunch of for your holiday cards. Thanks for spending some of your Friday with me to see my Fab Friday Design Team card for the color challenge. Make sure to stop by the blog to see what the other clever designers have come up with and enter your card in the gallery so we can see how clever you are! I hope you have a really good Friday! 🙂
