52CCT - Colours ....

..... Hello!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card ThrowdownLouise's colours are inspired by her love addiction of coffee, so I used that for my somewhat non-traditional Christmas card:

Stamps: Reverse Confetti - Be a Barista, Tinsel 'n' Trim; Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Baked Brown Sugar
Accessories: Cream Lustre Card; SU Card - Baked Brown Sugar; SU DP - Very Vanilla; Wink of Stella - Gold, Clear; Gold Mirri Card; Glitter; Gold Embossing Powder

I used the sketch at Reverse Confetti - SFYTT#23 to create this layered card.  I cut a panel of light brown card and stamped snowflakes in Versamark, added some sticky stuff and then glitter.  I cut a panel of cream design paper (sadly now discontinued) and attached a trim of gold mirri card.  I stamped the coffee cup on cream paper, heat embossed with gold powder and coloured a gold stripe with my Wink of Stella brush.  Once cut out, I added some sparkle to the pattern in the coffee foam - if you squint and look really, really hard - it's almost a Christmas tree!!!!  I finished the front with a horizontal strip on which I stamped the sentiment.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of brown card and added some decoration and a greeting to the white panel.

Here's a close-up of the coffee cup - it sparkles and if you look closely, you really can see that Christmas tree ☺.
