InStyle Stamps Winter-y Color Challenge

Happy Second Saturday of the month!

We are at our new challenge turn around using a winter-y bit of gorgeousness with our inspiration coming from retro paper.

It's a swatch from Olive Paper called Polar Holiday: Retro Snowflakes Blossom Wrapping Paper. It is delicious isn't it?

I just had to use Snowman Chloe with this delightful color palette. She is so fun to color and a simple cute and bold image you are going to want to have in your shopping cart on July 16, 2010.

InStyle Stamps Color Challenges are always fun and have incentive too! It's possible to win some digital images of your choice, so it's just more reason to try out these colors on your next project. Submit to the InStyle Stamps blog. The winner of this challenge will get to choose some digital images from the store. If you use InStyle Stamps images on your project you'll get 4 images of your choice. Don't worry if you don't have any InStyle Stamps, STILL enter, because you could win 2 images of your choice.

Can I tell you a little secret? I am just about to burst with excitement over next week's who-rah (is that a word?) at InStyle Stamps blog. It's Release Week and something you do not want to miss! See you at the store blog on Monday!
