CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge #252

CAS Colours and Sketches will have two challenges this month.  The first is a colour challenge.  We'd like you to choose one of our colour challenges from 2017 and use it in a seasonal card.

My card uses Challenge #233 from May 16th, using Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, and Sweet Sugarplum, which are the colors in this Christmas card.   The stamp is called Believe in Magic from Mama Elephant.  The globe is die cut out of the white card back, stamped on panel of Sahara Sand and mounted behind the white card back. I used white embossing powder for the globe outline, stars, moon and bubbles at the top if the globe and then added extra dots with a white paint pen.

The base of the globe is stamped in Rich Razzleberry on the card back and the sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and white embossing powder, then mounted on Sweet Sugarplum.  A few sequins finished off the card, while maintaining lots of white space.
The rest of the DT's cards can be seen here.  Take a look and then play along with us!
