I love, love, love these 3 colours together: light baby blue (as yummy snowflakes), rich vanilla bean (as with all things rich, a little goes a long way) and my favourite of all, cream.
I'm really happy with the way my Santa came out. He's cheerful with all those luscious flakes around as is the birdie, perched on his mitt. I used White Flower soft on all things white and fluffy (except Santa's beard#, Star Dust stickles on top of the Pearl embossed snowflakes #they still needed more punch, after all that embossing). I wrapped the ribbon into a flower adding pale blue sequins and a bell. The left side of the pic; beside the HoHoHo doesn't quite show the MS punch I slathered with Star Dust stickles as in teh pic it sort of blends into the Versamark/Pearl powder embossed background. A lot going on here yet I feel it all coordinates. The sparkle in RL is exciting to see!
