52 CCT Color Challenge #2

Welcome to another fabulous color challenge with 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown! Jacqueline has chosen a STUNNING scheme for you this week.

Take a look~

Isn't that just amazing?! And I could NOT create a card with these colors without also drawing inspiration from the fabulous photo she chose.

Here's my poinsettia card and details~




I also got my OTHER inspiration from Jacqueline as well. She showed us how to make an awesome recessed window card over at the Make My Monday challenge blog a few weeks past, and I HAD to try it out!

Here's my recessed card and details~






What do you think? I am pleased with how both of my cards turned out, but I do think I need more practice on the recessed window card before I can be as good at it as Jacqueline is. Come and join us this week, won't you?! And, please check out Jacqueline's blog for her fabulous cards--she never disappoints! :) Merry stamping!!!

BEAUTIFUL Mynnette! Love your wreath in the recessed window. And the pretty snowflakes surrounding it are the perfect touch!

While I like the recessed card I love the other one, the colours and image are just stunning.

Mynette, your cards are Fab as always!
I've really missed seeing your creations while I had Internet problems, but that's all sorted now so I've got lots of catching up to do and browsing through your blog.

These are such lovely cards! I must make another recessed window card, they look fab!

I've only just realised I was obviously influenced by your poinsettia card this week, I've used the same stamp set and embossing folder - thanks for inspiring! Ruth x
