Hey y'all!  Sorry I am late today...I had a card made and just did not like it!  LOL!  Every have that happen!?  Wellll, took me a bit, but finally got another made.  :D 

This week's challenge is called, It Takes Two, Only Two!  Which means, you can only use TWO colors, and that does include neutrals, on this challenge!  AND NO designer papers!  Only all that lovely cardstock out there!  and then just two of them!  Here is my card I made(over):

On my card, my two colors are kraft and white!  Like I said, neutrals are considered a color for this challenge!  For my card I used the following two sets:

Winter Cheer StampTV kit


the sentiment is from Theresa's set:

Peace and Joy

I took the trees from the set and made them look like birch least I hope they do!!  Alright, here are the rules:

Great card and challenge!  The one I just made for my video is just two colors, red and brown, so I got excited, but then I realized I do stamp on white cardstock.  So would that not follow the rules/fit the challenge?

Gorgeous cat! Whoa, this IS challenging -- 2 colors (hmmmmmm). Think I can ♥ Think I can ♥ ahh, KNOW I can :)

Love your card - made one for Sean's challenge that I thought would work but I put Gold cord on it. But I have an idea. Thanks for challenging us to think outside the box!

Beautiful card Cat! :)

no, it wouldnt qualify Mel!  Neutrals do count as one of the colors.

Very pretty card! Only two colors. I would not have thought to do that. This should be fun!

Can't ever imagine you making a bad card Cat!  Great challenge...I am going to try like heck to join you!!!  Your card is gorgeous too!

Great challenge Cat....ready to give it a shot

Wow, talk about a Challenge! 

Whew, woman, you got me up a tree on this one....LOL 

Um...Tree, like on your card...oh, never mind, it was really funny in my head!  LOL

Your card is gorgeous btw.  That is really something for just two colors!!!  Very cool.

Gorgeous card! They sure do look like birch trees. What is that piece the Peace and Joy are on, vellum? Doesn't look white because the words are and they wouldn't show up.

Great challenge!  Love this card you made Cat, it is so pretty!  It just goes to show me that a card can be made of only 2 colors and still look fabulous!

Wonderful ChallengeCat! I love your card, and that it only has two colors! Beautiful…   :)
