Paper Players #73 - Jaydee's CAS Colors

Hi stampers! Wow, it has been a whole WEEK since I have posted! (ridiculous!!) I  did NOT mean for that to happen...life has been incredibly busy lately. I even had a post ready to share with some of the beautiful birthday cards I received this week. (stay tuned...it's still coming...) I just need a few more hours in the day...Ack!! 


This week at the Paper Players, the lovely Jaydee is our hostess and she selected a deliciously, elegant color combo for inspiration:
These colors are so rich! I tried to do them justice...although what I lack in CAS-skills, I completely make up for in sparkly accents...hopefully! :) The tree and the sentiment are heat embossed and I dressed up the background by adding some texture . I hadn't used the Snow Swirled set in a while, so I thought it was about time to break it out of the case.  All and all, it was an easy card to create, which is totally my cup of tea, lately!  
Please stop by the 'Paper Players and check out what the rest of the DT have created for inspiration this week. We sure hope you will join us and play along!
