Just Us Girls Color Challenge #220

It's a color challenge this week, brought to us by the talented Sue T. at Just Us Girls!  Beautiful choice for the colors, Sue T.

Don't forget to check out our December Guest Designer Jan Del Bone!  She has an amazing creative style.

I used my beloved Tim Holtz deer die cut again.  Stamped the sheet music on kraft and die cut the deer.  Sponged with Distress Inks and topped it off with some TH Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  Added Christmas Red Stickles to the berries on the flourishes.  Colored the poinsettia, by Gina K with Twinkling H2Os and cut them out and layered.  It needed a little something, so I added the bow on the deer.
This was the original one I made for this challenge.  Added WPlus9 white ink (my favorite white) on the dry embossed snowflakes.  Die cut the larger snowflakes from brown and kraft cs, adding some Rock Candy Crackle Paint to the brown one.  Circle sentiment is from Gina K.  I wanted the small snow dots to stand out more, so colored with Sakura Stardust red gel pen.

Just a reminder that Just Us Girls is starting up the Guest Designer position once again!!  Winning  Chic of the Week puts you in the running for the GD spot.  At the end of the month, after we have all of our Chic's of the weeks for that month, the JUGS girls will decide who the Guest Designer will be for the following month!
