Good morning everyone!! I am sitting here watching huge snowflakes fall here in Central Texas...it's just beautiful and sooo got me in the mood to go to Colorado for da Mudder's tea party!! It seems Shaun White, the Olympic Snowboarder, has been practicing there and really upset Abner the Abdominable Snowman for disturbing his white space. We were to add a little color so everything wasn't so white. I added a few red *flags* and some flower silhouettes to add a little spice to his boring world!!
The color challenge was all about the Olympics, too. We were to pick which event we wanted to enter. I entered the first one to add one color (red) and a neutral (black). My dessert was the silver pearls.
This is also for the DDC challenge hosted by Fran (Francie G.)...it's a 1-2-3 challenge. I used:
3 silver pearls.
You can find the DDC challenge in the challenge forum post # 67. Be sure to add DDC to the keywords section of your upload so we can find your card.
The image from Clear Dollar Stamp's Plumes and Blooms set were stamped twice with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear ep. The outside edge was embossed with a square Nestability and the ribbon and silver pearls finish it off. TFL and have a great day!!

Must check out the colour challenge, I might have entered accidentally in that instead of in Shaun's snow-boarding classes. Think I'd feel safer with the colours, if it comes to that! Love the sheer elegance of this - and it's snowing here too!!

Ol' Abner is going to really be pleased with these red flags and beautiful silhouettes. He's never seen so much color in his life. He may have to wear some sun shades for a bit to get used to these brilliant colors we're all carrying to him. Beautiful card!

Joan, I'm not sure what the tea pot challenge is, but I love your take on the olympic colors today. The colors really pop! I love your embossed square in the background. Brilliant and adds so much texture! TFS

Joanie, my friend, this is pure class and elegance; so beautiful! I think Bertie is taking a nap from all her flinging activity, but she's sure to stop by a little later on and let you know what she thinks of this beauty, too!
