Santa Owl dressed in Fall colors...

I thought it would be fun to take today's SCS Color Challenge colors - Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze, and use them for a Christmas themed card.

Once again, no SU "In Colors", so I adapted with my prismatics. I used Desert Coral Dark, Iced Teal Light, and Suede Brown Dark. The Greetings from the Wise (Penny Black) image was stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Neenah Solar white, colored with copics, and layered him. The sentiment (Just Rite 10 Designer Centers and Borders) was stamped with Versamark onto the smooth side of the Suede Brown Dark paper and was embossed with Detail White (Judikins) embossing powder.

The Iced Teal paper was embossed with the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the circles were cut out with my Nestabilities. I sponged all the edges with SU's Chocolate Chip, and pierced the top and bottom panels.

Finally, I added Ultrafine glitter to the Santa cap and some thin offray ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Check out SCS's Color Challenge Gallery for more inspiration with these colors! Click HERE.

Happy Stamping!!
