Only one more week till the big day. I am busy finishing up shopping, cooking, wrapping, and crafting. I did take some time out to create for Inky Paws's  reminder. We are looking for you to use silver and or gold in your creation.

Juxtaposition is an act or instance of placing two elements close together or side by side. This is often done in order to compare/contrast the two, to show similarities or differences, etc.  My card enbodiesthe concept. I took the modern trees in Newton's Nook's "Festive Forest" and the old timey feel of "Winter Memoriesand put them together.  It works doesn't it? I added the silver snow by using the petite snow stencil from Newton's Nook.

I loved the use of siver and gold, but did try my hand at another color combo.

Head on over to Inky Paws and join in this festive theme challenge. We will chose a RANDOM entry to win a $20.00 Newton's Nook store gift certificate. Our favorite entries from each challenge will be highlighted the following Monday, so all entries have a chance to be featured on the blog.

The deadline to enter today's challenge is Friday December 21, 2018, at MN CST. The winners will be announced on the following Monday at Inky Paws.
