Having a play with some crafty buys

I couldn't resist having a play with some of my weekend 'buys'........the stamps,papers and twine are all from Ally Pally.....and, not surprisingly, I couldn't resist a lot of layering either.
I really can't decide whether my favourite Christmas colours this year are red and green......or red,aqua and white!! What colours are your favourites?
A few challenges......The Ribbon Girl and Craft-Room Challenge want 'xmas'.......Scrap Creations want 'girly'.......and Sweet Stampin and Simon Says want 'anything'.
If you'd like to join in with 'pass the book'.....and have  chance of getting 'The Cardmakers Sketchbook'......look here.....open til Friday.

I can't make my mind up. I love kraft and red, but I also loved your aqua scheme from a few posts back. And I don't think you can ever go wrong with red and green at Christmas either!

I'm a traditionalist and prefer red and green, but some years my cards have been blue and silver. I love this card; those patterned papers are gorgeous!

Ginger said...

This looks absolutely gorgeous on my computer screen!!
You know, I love all kinds of colour combinations for Christmas. Last year I found when doing JYC I was getting tired of the papers I chose half way through so I mixed it up a bit after... This year I am going to pick a few different lines :)

Abi said...

Well I like both combo's!! I can't choose just 1. Love your card, the colouring is fab & so are the layers. Thanks so much for playing along with Sweet Stampin x
