WMCCC - March - Navy & Lime


Have you been playing along with the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge?  This is an opportunity to make a few Christmas cards each month so that you won’t be in a panic come December.  It's also a great way to get some inspiration for how to put good use to those Waltzingmouse stamps.  We all know that December brings enough panic making preparations and gift buying without adding the pressure of having to make 50 cards in one month, so why not get started today?  You can see the latest challenge and get more information here.  Here's the good part - prizes are to be had and you can start joining the challenges any time you like - meaning if you're like me and didn't get to the February challenge until April - that's ok.  Post your project in April and link it up to the Gallery and leave a comment in the forum so other visitors can check it out.  

I'm still determined to get caught up so here is my submission for the March challenge which was a little trixie!  A color challenge of - get this - lime and navy.  Well I figured I can mix colors up with the best of them - red and purple, pink and red - but I can honestly say I've never done a navy and lime card until this one.  I stamped the snowflake background in Navy and that big ole Santa shoe print with the engraved tree in the lime green.   I think the colors added to the whimsy of the shoe print!  I had to add some gems because to me Christmas is all about the magic.
I hope it makes you smile - and maybe inspire you a bit to play along with the challenge.  There's enough magic in Christmas to spread around the whole year!
