52CCT: April Color Scheme

Hi, friends!  Welcome to another wonderful challenge for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  This week we've got a gorgeous and elegant color scheme ready for you to work with.

Here's the color scheme~

My card~

Details~




I've used a fabulous stamp by Woodware (thank you, Ruth!), a Sakura clear glitter gel pen to highlight the words on the stamp, patterned paper by Recollections, baker's twine from my stash, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

I went CAS for this one and I think it worked out quite well!  I used the polka dot paper to mimic the dots of the stamped image.  The pearls were placed as "berries" and I really can't wait to use this stamp again and have red ones--as Ruth was kind enough to send me some of those, too!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card!  I do hope you'll join us this week and that you'll let my DT buddies know how amazing their cards are as well!  HUGS and merry stamping! :)

Absolutely fabulous! I love the simplicity of the design with the focus on the date! The paper piecing in the numbers and leaves is fab and I adore the pearl berries. Great work.

I love all the little details, Mynnette! Like the little pearls, the baker's twine on top of the ruffled ribbon, and the button. It all makes for a very modern and festive card!
