Embellish Snowflakes Color Challenge

I have another card challenge entry to share with you!  This time I've entered the Embellish Snowflakes Color Challenge from the Embellish Magazine blog.  The challenge was to incorporate snowflakes and use four colours (pictured below) which were Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip and Kraft.


The challenge proved to be a bit more difficult than I anticipated!  The four colours look stunning together, but can easily overwhelm each other. 

Here's my entry:



I used Kraft as my base and stamped it with Versamark and Tempting Turquoise.  I also used a section of Kraft stamped with Versamark and Whisper White craft ink.  There's not a lot of yellow in this design as it quickly overwhelmed the softness of the images, but I really like the element that it adds.  The yellow circles were the idea of my good friend Dimity (Thanks Dim!) and it really ties the yellow in to the whole card.

Hope you like it!
