I made this ATC for khall's Soft Subtle Winter ATC swap. The guidelines allowed for neutrals, but I stretched the rules a little bit to work in the rich browns. Although Chocolate Chip is in Earth Elements, I think most people would agree that it is a great neutral. I've made use of my favorite things on this ATC: a Marvy Uchida scalloped punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder and tag die, Gamsol magic, stitched ribbon, and brown.
Edited to add: The background for the winter scene is Pale Plum. The snowflakes were highlighted with my white Signo while the snowman and ground were done with a white Prismacolor pencil and a little blending.

Beautiful card. Like the color combo.
