Just Cute Bears & Friends - Black, White & One Other Colour

This week's Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge is a colour combo:

'Black, White & One Other Colour'

I've used pink as my extra colour...inspired by the funky papers from the 'Rose Tinted Christmas' pad by DCWV. As I also wanted to try and keep my image mainly those three colours too, I've not used a bear this week, but a cute Penny Black cow stamp called 'Bedecked Antlers'. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the scalloped border, and myCuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die for the snowflakes, which I then coated with Glamour Dust.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous cards by my lovely Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge DT buddies.

Love the un-traditional colours you have used, they work so well with your cute image. I have these papers and could not decide what to do with them but I may just have to case your card for the inspiration.
Thank you for joining us this month at Penny Black at Allsorts and we hope you will join us next time.
