PP72:Naughty or Nice?

Hi All, Happy Sunday! The weekend is almost over, but the new Paper Players challenge is just beginning. LeAnne has a nice, cozy holiday palette for us to play with this week: Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke and River Rock.

I love River Rock, so I couldn't wait to pull it out and play. I actually didn't have Riding Hood Red, so, surely, I had to add it to my collection. It's funny how some colors have been around forever...but you just never get around to buying them ;)

Along with my new order of Riding Hood Red, I ordered up the Letters to Santa DSP. There happens to be a print in there that has all of these colors. I used it as my background and drew from it as my inspiration.

If you can believe it, there are no stamps on this card. These are all prints in the paper pack that I cut out and used to make a bit of a collage. I did cheat and add a bit of Early Espresso to my color combo. I think it adds a nice balance to the card. And...since we're talking Naughty and Nice...I finished it off with a little bling. It just seems fitting!

Are these colors talking to you? If so, be sure to hop on over to the Paper Players Blog and upload your project. While you're there, be sure to check out all of the other fabulous cards the Players have put together for you. Thanks so much for stopping by!
