I have been trying very hard to embrace sketches and sketch challenges and so I am happy to say that I played along with one today!  I cruised over to Mojo Monday and grabbed a challenge for today.  I will also admit that I have REALLY struggled with Stampin' Up!'s Island Indigo.  I do not mean a little, I mean a LOT!  In fact, now that this has turned into True Confessions of a Rubber Stamper, I will also admit that I opened that ink pad today.  Can you believe it?  And I am a color junkie!

So when I saw the challenge, I knew that I also wanted to try this color, I mean, if you are going for a challenge, really go for it, right?  I opened the ink pad color, turned to Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach and totally was not feeling it.  Then I got to thinking and pulled out my Silver Glimmer Paper, and it was LOVE!  This is a gorgous combination!  I believe that all my Christmas cards will be this combination! 

Here is the card that I came up with, and I love it so much that I also made it into a video for you!
