CCT Burgundy, lime and cream - you still have time to join in.

Here is another card for the Christmas Card Throwdown colour challenge. 


I think this was heavily influenced by our previous sketch challenge. I used scraps of card to raise up the front and make the circle indented. This has made it quite weighty but I hope not too thick to post. 
You might be able to see a bit better here:

I'm still using the cream card which I mentioned in a previous post. The front has odd purple swirls on it but the back is very pretty. I'll be sorry when I run out as I can't get any more. 
Do have a go at this challenge, you have one more week to play. 
As I write this there are very few entries, either everyone is very busy or the colours have put people off. If you are not sure about them you could try using just a little bit of colour, as I have here.  

I'm also skipping over to Pixie's snippets playground. I've used quite  few snippets on the front and to pad it out and raise it.  
Also Scrappy Mo's Rudolf Days Challenge which is to enter a Christmas Card between 25th and the end of each month. As this is the 25th, I'm heading over there.  

I've used:

Inky Doodles - Print backgrounds 2 stamps. 
Tonic circle die
Tattered Lace edge die
Cranberry and Twisted Citron ink pads
Wink of Stella clear pen.
I don't have names for the other items.

  5. Your lime and burgundy card is so pretty. I like the way you accented the bauble with the inset layers.
    This is such a great colour combo!
