Paper Smooches Sparks Cool Shades Challenge

Display our button

It seems like it has been forever since I have posted a card to my blog, but with the holidays getting closer by the day, I have been busy doing holiday type things.  I have been making cards, just none that I can post until the end of the month, which will be here before you know it! Once again my family headed out, this afternoon it is the movies and left me home watching Holiday Inn in front of a beautiful fire, perfect for a rainy day.  While watching the movie I was checking out blog challenges to see if I would be able to get a card or two made and found Paper Smooches and there was 3 hours left, plenty of time to whip up a card.  I love the colors for this weeks Cool Shades Challenge and it was fun to do a card that had nothing to do with Christmas.  I pulled out my Cyber Cafe stamps and some matching patterned paper and went to only took about 30 minutes to put this together and I am going to need a few thank you cards for after the holidays are over.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my card during this busy time of year...

To be honest with you I really had a difficult time telling if the top left color was bright pink or red, so I went with red after checking out the sample cards on the Paper Smooches blog.
