I tried hard to break my mitchy/matchy mold and combine some colours that I do not usually put together. I wanted the image and the pink die cut I chose, to stand out on the DP. The two design papers are quite heavily embossed with opalescent snowflakes. It seemed that I would have to introduce a third colour or those papers would have dominated my card. Hope I was right!
I have a bit of a confession. I had to stray a bit from the brief! I made up some card kits at home and took them with me to Mum's. Her neighbour kindly loaned me a folding table and I set up a little craft area in the guest room. Somehow I managed to lose the third snowflake brad. It was going to sit on the large snowflake to the left of the image. I had to shift the image over to hide that it was missing! The brads are my VOS item. I think they are at least 10 years old...felt good to use them. The green sparkly self adhesive ribbon is another golden oldie...originally from the dollar store.
As you have probably guessed, the pink diamonds are my "other" embellishment.
The chipboard button is a NBUS item from a recent RAK win. I liked that it was a self adhesive style. Easy peasy!
I was not able to finish the inside of the cards I made at Mum's. I will have to finish them once I am home again. There was a limit of what I could manage to carry on the bus. lol
