PP76: Very Merry Snowflakes

Hi All! As I'm typing this, I'm realizing that this will be my last card design for the Paper Players. It has been a great ride and I've truly enjoyed working with this wonderful group of ladies. Thanks so much for having me!

For our Clean & Simple challenge this week, Ann has come up with a beautiful color theme: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold.
What a gorgeous color combination this makes--it's just p
erfect for the holidays. I looked through all of my DSP and couldn't find anything that would work, so I stuck with good 'ol cardstock and some gold paper.

Of course, I missed the Clean & Simple part till I went in to upload my card to the Paper Players blog, but luckily I kept it pretty simple. My favorite part...that Baker's Twine. I've had that in my stash for quite some time and was finally able to use it. These simple little snowflakes are one of my favorites. They can be found in the Season of Friendship stamp set.

Are you inspired with this color combo? If so, hop on over to the Paper Players blog and upload your card or project. While you're there, check out all of the other fabulous design that the ladies have created just for you. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Season of Friendship and Short & Sweet
Paper: Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla Cardstock; Gold Paper
Ink: Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink
Accessories: 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Scallop Border Punch, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Ivory and Red Buttons, Mat Pack & Paper Piercer and Gold Brads
