Colour Me

Good evening, I hope I find you well.
I've been to the local garden center with Ben and Co to buy a new Christmas tree for their new home, as the old one looks a little lost with the new high ceilings! The place was absolutely packed by the time we got there just after lunch and we were surfing the car park trying to find a spot! Anyway it was a successful trip, so they will be putting it up sometime next week.
So that's partially the reason why I'm only just getting around to posting this card I made last night, the other being it was too dark to take a good photo! I'd been making a table runner for the festive season earlier in the day while there was a hint of daylight!

It's based on the colour choice over at  Colour Me.

Now these are all SU colours and I don't have any so I used DIs of similar colour to create the central panel and border by masking off the areas to be inked. I think I got the blue a bit wrong as when mixed with the pinky red it turned purple and got lost in the grand scheme except around the edges! After blending the inks I stamped the snowflakes in Versafine Onyx Black and adding some teeny tiny sparkles to the centers. I added the sentiment (free with a magazine) to the bottom right corner.
