Seven Course Meal for Two Amber Ink Holiday Hop

How exciting! Today is the First Annual Holiday Blog Hop with Amber Ink.

Our challenge was to create a "Seven Course Meal for Two"

OK! OK! I know! You're saying "What??!!??"

Yeah, me too... at first... once I figured out what they were talking about (you know, those folks in Hawaii talk funny sometimes) it was actually really fun!!

So here's how I translated it:
Use 2 colors (and a neutral- in my case, white)
Use 7 "things" (this can be products, procedures, techniques, etc.)

My seven "courses" are:
   1 Amber Ink iPaper (Purple Holiday Cheer)
+ 2 Amber Ink Images from the "Tis the Season set"
+ 2 Sizzix embossing folders ("Frost" and "Dearly")
+ 2 brads

Of course one of my two colors was PURPLE (GO TEAM PURPLE!!)

LOL - You are so funny. GO PURPLE!!! You really did cook this challenge. Not even any coloring and your card rocks! I am amazed that those are two teeny tiny digis and can enlarge to look so cool - and the embossing looks amazing on the ipaper. Great job Goddess.
