Colourful December

 Today is the first Friday of December and time for a Colour Combo Challenge on the Daring Cardmakers
This time Gez has chosen the combo and it's such a pretty palette of colours!

They may be a little unusual for a Christmas card, but the baubles in the photo inspired me to make some of my own
Here's my card
 I used:
Various Distress Inks to create the colours on a sheet of white card
Craft Robo to cut the fairy lights and baubles
Trees are cut using a Cuttlebug die 
Stars are cut with an EK Success
6 stars in a circle punch
Baker's Twine inked with darker green for the strings
Matching Stickles shades on the stars
Gold, White, Black gel pens
Gold thread
Glossy Accents
The lights and baubles are raised slightly on tiny scraps of cereal packet chipboard
This is our Inspiration Photo for this week's challenge:


And a bit of a closer look at the bits and bobs on my card


I've got a small amount of the coloured card left over - hoping there's enough to make a couple more cards using these gorgeous colours
You can see more cards made using these pretty shades over on the Daring Cardmakers blog, and we're hoping you'll be inspired to join in and make something to share with us this week.


Thanks for visiting, Please come back soon - Don't forget you're welcome to join in with our Daily Blog roll and leave a link to your crafting HERE
