Yet another Christmas Card....

That was the question being asked at Colour Throwdown today. The answer is "Yes, yes I can, with a modifier, because I wrote it down wrong when I took notes....(Garden Green)" I made another Christmas card to add to my ever growing stash....  I also used the Stampin' Royalty Sketch challenge
This challenge intrigued me... I wasn't sure if I liked the layout, but had a play nonetheless. 
I used a Vanilla card, then layered some Riding Hood Red (which has been embossed) on top. Then I stamped the tree from Snow Swirled in Silver, and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then layered this on to Garden Green (this is the mistake I made, because I thought it was on the list of colours..... it was not....) Then, I stamped one of the snowflakes and embossed it the same way as before. punched it using the scallop circle and layered it on another scallop circle. I then put 3 small silver brads on the left hand side to finish it up. 
I'm thinking of re-doing this card when I have some more free time, and do it with the Celery, so keep your eyes peeled for updates...
