52CCT - Colours ...

....  Hi!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Jacqueline has picked some wonderful colours.  There are five colours, you must use at least three of them and the yellow is gold!  I managed to use all the colours, here:

Stamps: My Favourite Things - Seasonal Sentiments, Sheet Music BG
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Picot Edge Circles (S4-345) #3, Squares Lg (S4-126) #7; Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax # 3 & 4, Fishtail Flags STAX #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; DPs: K-ology - Addison (Blue), Kaisercraft - Holly Bright (Green), Remember Me (Red); Gold and Clear Embossing Powder; Basic Grey - Candy Dots


I used the sketch from this week's My Favourite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - MFTWSC#162.  I like the layered look of the card and decided to let the design paper be the main focus.  I made the base from black card and on the white panel stamped the large sheet music background and embossed it in gold (that took rather longer than it should have!!!).  I cut a square in black and then made flags in red, blue and green.  I finished the front with a very simple sentiment in black and embossed with clear powder, adding a tiny enamel dot.  I attached the circle with dimensional tape.  Inside I made multiple layers with the design papers and a bold, simple greeting in black.

Super job working the colors into the sketch! I'm a fan of the musical score background, too. :)
