Saltbox Studio Color Challenge


The Saltbox Studio gals have a color combo challenge they are sharing on their blogs today, and I thought it would be fun to play along! The colors were Swiss Red and Cabana Blue - such a wintery combo that I decided to pull out my Saltbox Brrrr set. I've had this "red mittens" idea for this set in my head for a while, so it was nice to get a chance to put it to paper. This was inspired by one of my favorite childhood books which is now out-of-print: Too Many Mittens.
And here are the other gals who are planning to play along, so be sure to check out their blogs today too:

Jen
Mary Rose
Lexi
Lori
Geeta
