PPA 146 - Color Challenge

 Hello Friends!

It's time for another PPA Color Challenge and this months color combo is both beautiful and stylish! I chose a Christmas card to build up my stash. I send a vast amount of Christmas cards each year, so I need to create them early. 

My card is clean and simple with  lots of layers. To keep it simple, I stamped the image and greeting in VersaMark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder adds a subtle touch to the background.
