I love co-hostessing this challenge with lovely ladies who pick color combinations I would probably never choose myself, and then being blown away at how AWESOME they are, and once again, making something that has made me think outside my BOX. I always tell when I don't like a card, so I have to say, this is my most favorite "cute" card I have made in a long time. These colors just seemed to lend themselves to this cute polar bear...and I had a lot of fun making this card and really love it! Is it bad to admit you love your card?? I certainly don't love them all! :) Thanks Peggy for a wonderful challenge that made me step outside my own comfort color combos......you and Julia and Vicki really help me use colors I don't think of, where Mary and Betty pick ones that always seem easier for me. :) My wonderful colorful friends!! All of you!! I love doing this with all of YOU special ladies!!! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Karen, eye-popping fun and GORGEOUS card! One wouldn't know you're not comfortable with this color combo - you totally nailed the challenge! LOVE that cute little polar bear and the snowflakes around him, and the texture on your card says winter all the way. The little dangly mittens are adorable! And you are SO allowed to love your own cards. :)

I adore this card, with the beautifully colored image to all the texture with the embossing and that sweet ribbon! And it is totally okay to say you love your card!! As well as you should - it is fabulous!
