It's a coffee-lover's dream over at Color Me Beautiful, with these caffeine tones as our inspiration for this week's challenge!
I decided to go with a sepia-toned Christmas card and managed to use four of the five colours.
Here's my card - if you click on the photo you can see the sparkle better:
I masked off my ground area for the snowdrifts before I stamped the trees in soft suede and Sahara sand. The sky was sponged with river rock and soft suede and I used suede again for the ground. When everything was dry I inked the whole area with Versamark and added iridescent ice embossing powder to give a winter sparkle! It looks totally GOR-JUSS in real life! And did you notice? I used a button again! LOL
- stamps - Lovely as a Tree, Many Merry Messages (retired)
- card - confetti cream, very vanilla, early espresso
- other - iridescent ice embossing powder, heat tool, satin ribbon, vintage faceted button, embroidery thread, sticky strip, mounting tape, markers

Thanks for calling in.
Edited to add: I have had a few requests both here and on other sites on how to do the snow on this card. I will video the technique for you and add it here asap. Thanks so much for your interest!
