I am sharing a rather different color challenge for Paper Players challenge.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the colors.  But when I first saw them I had to think a minute.  Now however, I am in love and trying to figure a way to incorporate some Bermuda Bay into my Christmas decorations.  I went wild with my colors last year so I’m mostly there with two of the three colors.



What do you think?  I believe these bright colors all work wonderfully together.  The only problem I had was there is not a Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Blend.  I made do with the Stampin’ Write Marker in Gorgeous Grape and actually the lines it left on the stocking topper works.

Here is the challenge from Paper Players:
