Great Minds

Well great minds think alike -- isn't that how the saying goes?


I did the earth elements Santa yesterday, and I finished this one up today. On this card I used soft subtles colors. I wanted to show you how the same card can have a totally different look by changing the colors, and only the colors.

The funny thing is that Jen, Pieces of Me, had the same idea. She is running a BLOG candy challenge. She wants us to do two cards -- using the same image, but just change the colors. See what I mean -- great minds. Go check out her site!!! And best of all -- I have already done my submission for her challenge!!! (you see I am ALWAYS late)

This card is the same layout and images as yesterday's. The only thing I changed was the colors. Well, I used DP on this one instead of CS in some places.
Do you see how different the card looks with the different colors? Which one do you like best? Maybe I will do one with RR, BB, and IC to really make a difference.

Stamps: Holiday Tag Team, The Snowflake Spot Inks/Markers: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Black Staz on Paper: POP, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink Extras: Tool Kit, White gel pen, dimensionals

How cute, a pink Santa!

I like this card better than the first. But I might change my mind again if I see it in the other colors....;)

Love this stamp, he is too cute, it is tough decision, think I would have to go with your first card, but then I think I like the softness of the colors of the second card.
