Jingle Shopper

I do find colour swatch challenges difficult. I wanted to try the colour combo for this week's theme at Christmas Card Challenges  (see below) . All the time I was making it I thought I was doing it right, but now I see it together with the swatch, I can see the blue's far too bright and the brown too red. Ah well!

The image here is an A Day for Daisies digi - I coloured it with alcohol markers and paper pieced her coat and bags. The JINGLE stamp is Pink Paislee and the sentiment is MFT.

As well as Christmas Card Challenges, I'd like to enter:

Gorgeous card! Love the patterned paper you chose for her coat. I like the way the colors blend together. They work great with the color challenge too. Thanks for playing along with us at CWWC and good luck. Hugs, Robin
