Soft Spruce Christmas - Stampin' Up! Spruced Up

   I'm continuing to roll through Christmas cards and I used the latest challenge over at Color Throwdown for today's card.  They want us to use mustard, pink and green.  I love the softer color palette and it's always a challenge to use pink! And I figured So Saffron was a Dijon mustard color and would count!

  I started with a Basic White thick base and then topped it with a piece of Blushing Bride.  I roughed up the edges and then embossed some white snowflakes in one corner.

  The trees are stamped in Soft Succulent; one on Basic White cardstock the other on Soft Succulent cardstock.  I cut them out and popped them up on a Basic White Stylish Shapes circle.  One tree is decorated with Blushing Bride stars and both have So Saffron stars as toppers.

  The whole circle is popped on dimensionals over a length of Evening Evergreen ribbon.  The simple sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen and added to the edge of the circle.

  A few subtle Polished Dots are added for a tiny bit of shine to finish off this design.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
