52CCT: March Color Challenge

Hi, friends!  It's time for my weekly 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown post!  This week, we've got a fabulous color combo for you to be inspired by!

Here's the color combo we're working with~

And my take~

I've used stamps by Close To My Heart, Stickles by Ranger in Icicle, Tuxedo Black ink by Memento, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Thanks for hopping by today to take a quick peek at my card!  I hope you join in the fun of our challenge, and don't forget to leave some love with the amazing DT members, too!  They've got some amazing creations for added inspiration! :)  HUGS and merry stamping, friends!

UPDATE: Here's how I made that background...I've had some people ask. ;)  I just took a large acrylic blog, added ink to it, spritzed it with glimmer mist, and then "stamped" it onto my paper.  That's it!  I hope it works for you!!!

I can't tell whether you've made your own background or used a DP, any which way it looks fab! Great scene for this winter cottage!
