... the Play Date Cafe Challenge for this week was really quite tough!! The colours they wanted us to use in our cards are brown, grey and silver - not the usual sort of colours in a card.
However, I've come up with a card and I'm really pleased with it. I decided to use the lovely Nutcracker set - the Nutcracker Prince can be coloured in so many different ways - so this time he's shades of grey and brown. I added a lovely embossed Christmas tree - the folder was free with the Creativity magazine and is just the right size for this card. I added some silver by using a silver sparkle embossing powder for the snow swirls. In real life this card is very pretty - it has lots of sparkle and shimmer - very festive in fact!!
