    Samantha used the fun color combo on this card featuring Winston driving his car full of gifts from the Winston's Home for Christmas stamp set. She used the red and green on the car, gift and trees and added the teal as a watercolor background on white paper! 

    Christmas Tree Thank you card by Kimberly Rendino| Inky Paws Challenge 38 | Festive Forest Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
    Kimberly created this adorable card by embossing the trees from our Festive Forest stamp set in white over red cardstock! She added in the "Thank you" from our Vegetable Garden stamp set and a just a little pop of teal!

    This sweet fireplace scene by Larissa uses red and green on the rug and fireplace swag while keeping a white card base. Then she added some teal in the background to help this lovely scene op off the card! This sweet image is from our Fireside Friends stamp set.

    This gorgeous wreath shaker card by Naki uses the color combo in the form of sequins inside the shaker! She also used the red and green on the wreath which was made with our Pines & Holly Die Set, and added an extra pop of teal with a teal tag using our new Joyful Tags stamp set! Such a fun card! 

    Winter Cat in Sweater Card by  Danielle Pandeline | Inky Paws Challenge 38 | Sweater Weather Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

    Snowflake Card by Crafty Math-Chick | Inky Paws Challenge 38 | Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
    Here is another lovely snowflake card using the color combo with  Beautiful Blizzard stamp set. Crafty Math-Chick created this one, using white for the base and added the snowflakes in the other colors of the challenge! I love the simplicity of this with the added sequins for a bit of bling!
