Scrapbooker's Paradise Playing in Paradise #89

It's so cold and miserable outside today I decided to spend the afternoon again in my craft room . I've been wanting to try the week challenge that Scrapbooker's Paradise has each week but for one reason or another have never gotten around to meeting the deadlines. So today I decide to make a card for this weeks challenge .
The challenge was to use a color combo for inspiration ---sky,aqua & kraft. Here's what I did

Method :
Paper: SU kraft,Bazzill blue,K&C DP, Graphic45 DP.
Inks: Distress Inks --Pumice stone,Walnut stain,Tumbled glass
Accessories: TH dies--Baroque alteration die,Rosette die, Reindeer Flight die, Mini Snowflakes die,MS edge punch (sorry don't know name), Cottage Cutz Pine cone die.Bakers twine,Candi,WOW Glitter EP platinum,Diamond dust cut glass.

I really enjoyed making this card and hope it meets the challenge. Thanks for looking .

Hi Marilyn: Pretty winter card using the challenge colours, and lots of elements. I see that pine cone die and I think it works nicely with this card. You may get some use out of it yet! LOL
