The Paper players #321 : A color challenge

Hi there!

Time for a color challenge at The Paper Players !


                                                          

Joanne's lovely color palette inspired me to make a Christmas card, but hey, you are free to show us how creative you can be with this palette!



A closer look:



I fell in love with this elegant , tall and slender reindeer silhouette the moment I saw her! Yes I think it might me Rudolph's sister, because those legs! ☺

To accommodate the lovely shape, I made a tall and skinny card. I thought horizontal stripes will work well to balance out the design, so I used the 2 greens in the color combination, to make a striped background from strips of card stock.

The panel I created was a little to wide, so I sliced off a small part, and then got the idea to alternate the colors on the one border of the background.

To add interest I embellished the flourish with rhinestones.

The reindeer silhouette is a cutting file from Apex Cuttables.

The Sentiment is from the Silhouette store  Design ID #106906.
