Are my snowflakes Serene or "krafty?"

you can decide.....
Today's color challenge is bravo burgundy, kraft and very vanilla. Kraft and very vanilla - me likey....bravo burgundy.....I haven't used that in a while. I don't dislike it...I just find myself not reaching for it as much as other colors. I don't know why..... hhmmm.....

Well, I used it today - and it pairs beautifully with kraft! No surprise there, huh? Kraft is like the George Clooney of papers....anyone could look good at it's side. Whoops! Getting off track....my bad! :)

Anyway...here is what I did:

Is there a more beautiful snowflake set than Serene Snowflakes?? Don't think so!! My main image panel is actually confetti cream instead of very vanilla. I guess I kinda cheated there, huh? I stamped snowflakes in bravo burgundy and sahara sand randomly. I then embossed the entire panel with versamark and irredescent ice embossing powder - YUMMY!!! That was matted with kraft. Wanna see the sparkle????

The vertical panel is bravo burgundy with 5/8 inch very vanilla grosgrain ribbon tied around it. The background panel is confetti cream matted with bravo burgundy. The card base is George Clooney.....I mean Kraft! hehe!!! The sentiment is from Snow Swirled, and it is stamped in bravo burgundy.

I did a little playing on the inside....wanna see?

The sentiment is also from Snow Swirled.

There you have it...two posts in two days in a row :)
