This week I attended a demonstrator swap along with Debbie B, a member of my team. Debbie came over for a few minutes a couple days before the swap to plan her card. We were challenged to use a palette of colors including Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky and one or two add'l colors of our choice. I used Garden Green on my card, to accent the flowers from Jar of Love. I saw a card on SplitCoastStampers by Iliana Crouse and I had to CASE it! Debbie saw a card with Christmas lights and made her own version with the challenge colors and modified it using the Stampin' Up! balloon punch to create lights! Clever, right?! The electric socket is from Embellished Ornaments framelits and the sentiment is from Wonderful Year stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.
