Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - All About You

Hello everyone!  It's been a long time since I've been here!  I've been on a two week vacation in the lovely country of Poland!  I have relatives there that I had never met before this trip, so it was an extra special vacation for me...one I'll never forget!  I'll have pictures in the near future for all to see (if you are interested!).

But today I'm here to post my challenge card for this week's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge.  We are sponsored by Amber Ink this week.

This week the challenge is called "All About You" and you are to use your favorite color.  I love peach colors so I used that as the color on my focal image.
I used the digi set from Amber Ink called 'Tis the Season to be Pretty and enlarged this pretty package image.  I colored it with peach colored markers and accented it with the light turquoise colors on the bows.  The sentiment was printed out and I added the liquid pearls to accent it.  I did the same on the packeages, however I think I should not have done that...maybe it's too much?  After I put all the layers together, I realized I was supposed to use the opposite side of the blue piece, which was my fav peach color!  I was in a hurry to get this done before I left for my vacation!  I also don't remember what the paper is because I did it two weeks ago!  I must say that this card is much prettier in real life...it looks very blah here!

So how are you doing with your Christmas cards?  If you start playing along, you will still have quite a few done!  I'm lovin' that I have so many ready to go!  If you play along with us, you have the chance to win a $15 store credit to Amber Ink as well!

Stop by the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the colors the design team chose as their favorites!  We hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new Just Us Girls challenge!
