Phindy's Place Challenge Challenge #87 - Colour Quartet


Welcome to the first Phindy's Place Challenge of 2012, we have a lovely fresh looking colour challenge for you this week:  brown, teal, celery/moss and white.  I've used an image called Snow Buddy, who is one of the Winter Cuties, I don't seem to be quite done with Christmas yet.  I've followed Sketch Saturday's layout and used papers by Basic Grey and Stampin' up, along with some dry embossing, punched snowflakes and some twill tape.  I do hope you join our challenge, it's a lovely colour combination to work with:).
My card is for:
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Gingerloft - Christmas and winter
My Craft Spot - winter wonderland
Sweet Stamps - winter
Everybody Art Challenge - snow
Creative Card Crew - snow day
Divas by Design - Christmas
Creative Belli - snowflakes
Christmas Challenges - punches or dies (snowflakes)

Finally, some of you may know that we have all had a horrid time over Christmas as my husband  left whch has been a dreadful shock to me and to my sons.  On Wednesday I came home to find these beautiful flowers had been delivered - from Phindy herself.  They came with a lovely message and I was very moved by her kindness, especially as she is going through problems herself as her son is treated for a serious injury.  Thank you Phindy.
