Tis The Season

When I first saw the color choices for the Play Date Cafe's challenge this week, I hesitated. My plan is to try to get holiday pieces done now and be a little prepared for the season and this sophisticated combo didn't quite say Christmas to me. By the time I put it together with the Mojo Monday sketch and some left-over Basicgrey paper I changed my mind. Here's where I started:

See, that's a beautiful color pallette and it's a pretty sophisticated sketch. But often beautiful and sophisticated go together and I think this time it worked out for me.

Although it's hard to see in the photo, I stamped the cream background cardstock with several size snowflakes from Papertrey Ink's Winter Swirls in soft blue and with a Versamark Watermark ink. It's all embossed to give it slight dimension, as are the mittens. For all my worry, I ended up liking this card a lot. Hope you do too!
