It's Color Challenge time!!! This is my third week of being a guest designer for the Color Challenges, and I'm thoroughly enjoying my time as a "guest"!
The awesome and talented Maura (beesmon) is the hostess this week for the challenge, and she chose the beautiful colors of SU Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler, and Always Artichoke. Her "dessert" is bling!! When I saw her beautiful color selections, I immediately thought of a Christmas card. Therefore, I created one.
Let's get to the best part first so I can get extra points! LOL (just kidding). I added "bling" in the form of Stickles! Hopefully you can see the bling in the windows and on selected leaves of the image.
Moving on, my card's main feature is a Winter Wonderland Scene made with a Cottage Cutz die and Solar White Card Stock. To break up the white and create a red building, I cut out a second Winter Wonderland Scene, but using Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I cut off the red church from the red die cut and adhered it to the original white one. I also used an Impression Obsession Die to add three Cherry Cobbler cardinals. (I think that Christmas isn't Christmas without cardinals!)
I added a poinsettia on the left-bottom corner that I made with Spellbinders dies and added Gold Flower Soft to the center of the flower. I mounted the scene on Always Artichoke card stock, added a Solar White frame mounted with foam tape, and adhered that to an Always Artichoke card base with the Cherry Cobbler sentiment.
Enjoy!! Thanks for looking and leaving comments!!

Fabulous! I love this scene, love how you made the red church, and agree emphatically that you can't have Christmas without cardinals. We moved from the east coast to Seattle 15 years ago, and one of the things I miss most is cardinals! Would you believe, none here?!?! Anyway, great card!

First of all, I'm grinning at the title of your card because I keep calling the SU Wonderland set Winter Wonderland, and my watercolor pines weren't even used in a wintry scene. Now, onto the business of gushing over your extraordinary little winter scene you have constructed - it is amazing, especially with the addition of the red church! It reminds me of a miniature village display, with the most suitable details.
