MFT Color Challenge #106

Happy Friday, everyone! Today's card is for the latest MFT Color Challenge.  This color palette is pretty fall-like, but since tomorrow is December 1st and there is snow on the ground, a Fall card just didn't seem right.  Good 'ole Mother Nature is messing with my head!

Here are the colors:

...and here is my card:

The dots on the background were created using a stencil and embossing paste onto a panel of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.  I really like the texture you get with embossing paste. Even though this stencil was made for a snow look, I just was just going for some polka dots....

If you've never participated in a card challenge before, it really is a great way to streamline your creative process.  Sometimes, I really feel overwhelmed with the amount of "stuff" that I have in my craft room. (said probably no one ever).  Having some parameters of a color palette or card sketch to work within can really help to narrow down choices.  Also, it forces me to use color combinations that I normally would not choose to put together or use supplies that I would normally overlook.  Give it a shot, you might just get hooked, too!

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!
