ColourQ Challenge #109

Hello!  OK, honestly, I looked at the colors this week and thought, "No way am I going to make a card this week.  I cannot think of how those would pull together in a card!"  But I gave it a little thought and came up with not only one card, but two.

Here is the (initially scary) color pallette:

 I needed to make a male birthday card, so I was pleased that these colors would work well for that.  So I used my Cricut and a super cute stamp set I just picked up last week from Studio G and made this cupcake card:
We had a beautiful Halloween with highs in the 60's.  But yesterday we got snow!  This is my front lawn yesterday:

Hooray!  I LOVE snow!! :)  SO, I decided as I was making the cupcake card, that these colors would make a GREAT snowman card!  I used the Telescoping Card tutorial at SplitCoast Stampers and here is my snowman:

 Then he unfolds to this:

I had fun making him!!

After some contemplation, I decided to enter the snowman card in ColourQ, if I can only choose one.  

Thanks for checking out my blog!!  I hope you have a creative day!  And don't forget to leave your comments! :)
