Big Bear Christmas {TCPTUES183 - Color Challenge}

 TGIF to you!! We are super excited here as the big Alabama vs LSU game is this weekend. This game is my favorite each year, win or lose, it's always competitive. There is nothing like SEC football! More is at stake than usual since it's #1 vs #2. Can't wait.

Lori is our TCP Tuesday hostess this week with a color challenge (TCPTUES183). Since I am now in full Christmas card mode I decided Big Bear would look fabulous with this color trio. After coloring with Copics, I cut the image out and attached it to a circle cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I cut my panels in a triangular shape in red and yellow and then matted each with the opposite color. Some twine wrapped around the card and three rhinestone stars completed the CAS look. The sentiment came from the A Beary Good Year stamp set and I cut it with the banner from the Easy Rosette CutUps.  

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Divine Twine, Echo Park and Crate Paper dp, Doodlebug button, Linen Thread
Copics: E40, E41, E70, E71, 0

All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog. As always, there is potential for fame (Pick of the Litter) and/or fortune (Pick of the Week). Good luck!
