Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Only 81 days left until Christmas!
Last year I had all of my holiday shopping done by Halloween and let me tell you - it felt GREAT! No such luck this year, but I'm hoping to get started soon and have it all finished by Thanksgiving. We'll see....

Today is challenge day over at the CSAYL blog. I hope you'll play along with us!
We're working with the following color palette this week:

To be honest, I was a little intimidated by having to use 5 colors. But in the end, I think I was able to pull it together. Here's what I came up with...

Here is how I incorporated the five colors:
Glorious Green - sentiment and small strip on right edge of main panel
Cool Carribean - String around navy cardstock
Chocolate Chip - ink used on reindeer image
Rich Razzleberry - card base and twill ribbon
Night of Navy - cardstock curled up on far right of main panel

So....have you started your Christmas cards yet? What are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time to get started! Hop on over to the CSAYL blog for more inspiration.

Have a great Monday. Until next time...

I love your card this week. I too was not sure about the color combo at first but now I really like it. I like the layout of your card!

Awesome job on this week's challenge. It was an interesting mix of colors but you did a fantastic job. . .I love how you incorporated the colors to your card. Although you have 5 colors on your card, you coordinated them so well that it's hard to tell there's so many colors!!!
