Christmas Card Challenge #33 - Color Challenge

Happy Sunday all!  This week over at Christmas Card Challenge we have a color challenge.  These are such lovely colors and translate well into a Christmas card.
 
This is how these colors translated into a Christmas card for me.  I stamped the snowflakes in red ink and the sentiment in smoky slate ink.  The vintage cream cardstock was matted with gray and red paper.  The snowflakes were shimmered up with a Wink of Stella shimmer brush.  Very simple and easy card to create, however it took me at least five tries to get this done.  I started with a poinsettia stamp that just wasn't stamping properly.  Then I used painter's tape and then washi tape to mask off the middle, and it kept pulling the paper.  Very frustrating!
 
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.
 
You can see more inspiration from the DT on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Loved your card when I saw it today. So elegant in such a simple way. I didn't admit it, but the card I posted was my 2nd try. Guess that happens sometimes.
