Pottery Barn Challenge for Paper Makeup

Today's Paper Makeup challenge was inspired by the Pottery Barn.  It's a colour challenge and I think it's the very first one I've ever attempted!   Here's the challenge

And here's my card using my favorite PMS stamp Cookie Man!
I don't know if I over did it with the colour scheme.  The cookie jar is what concerns me, I wanted to leave it white but it looked to blah!  And I don't know how to shadow white other then using a light blue (for snow) but since a cookie jar is cold wet snow I didn't know what a good colour would suit.  So by colouring it in dark greys it make the word COOKIE hard to see so I just traced over the word with a white gel pen.
Ok so I made a last minute card here.  I just love the colours for this challenge!!
I used the birthday sentiments from Paper Makeup.

hahaha!! You did just perfectly on the monster card, it just made me giggle that you had to do a 'do-over' to make up for it. I love both cards - those colors are sooo cool together. What a great bedroom too, I would have a hard time getting out of it every morning. ;) The cookie jar looks perfect.

Melyssa, that inspiration picture is fabulous and so are your cards from it! I love them both and don't see a thing wrong with the cookie jar! (I often use the cool grays to shadow white, if you want to try that - or warm grays if it is a living creature!!) :-)Traci
