Rainbow Card Challenge: Design Team Call

I love a good card challenge - one that makes me think, that pushes me outside my comfort zone; that encourages me to try new things. Well, my crafty friend Mynn Kitchen has a new challenge blog here

For this design team call, we've been asked to create a monochromatic card. I'm thinking that the minimal usage of "neutrals" would be allowed - at least, I hope so.

Here's my card

Mynn provided an inspiration board. 

I was inspired by the blue colors and the mittens. I stamped the mittens with strings using Poppy Stamps' Dreaming of a White Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink. I used clear embossing powder which I heat set. I added color with Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I like the look of lighter colored pencils on dark cardstock. The sentiment from Newton's Nook Designs' Stylish Stockings stamp set which was heat set using silver embossing powder. 

Thanks for stopping by
