52 CCT Colour Challenge

It's a colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week and a very interesting one at that!

I was toying around with a few combos. First of all, I thought I was going to choose glittery red, then gold. In the end I decided to go with mint green! I have used SU's Mint Macaron envelope paper (not just for envelopes!). I added some of the lovely co-ordinating lace trim to make a bow and cut the sentiment from a piece of patterned paper by Pink Paislee (I layered this on a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock). I used a piece of Basic Black as my card base and used a trio of black enamel dots.

We are all looking forward to seeing your colour combos! Hope you can join us, April x
