Black & White + 3 Colors ~ Color Dare #373

Welcome to our end of the year Color Dare! We're challenging you to use the colors Black & White + 3 colors of your choice! That should be fun, right! What colors will you pick? 

Now the rule here is to use ONLY 3 colors with Black & White. NO other neutrals are allowed. That means no browns or grays.....only Black and White.

We are also teaming up with Double Trouble for this challenge. 
Thing 1 asks to use stripes (not plaid) somewhere on the project. If your stripes are Black & White you get an extra chance in their drawing. Thing 2 and Thing 3 also have suggestions so be sure to check out their home page for the details!

For  my card the 3 colors I used are Candy Apple, Lagoon and Saffron along with the Black and White.  The sleigh was colored with markers and used a journal pen to make the runners of the sleigh stand out. 

Shimmer under the sleigh for snow.

Reindeer Crossing is our December Stamp of the Month. This means you can only get this stamp during December so don't wait and get yours now! Look at all those cute images and wonderful sentiments. This is a stamp set you'll want to create with every Christmas!
