Cr84fn Colour Challenge - Yellow, Kraft, Neutrel

Yes, I feel crazy to be making another Christmas card before October (this is still very early for me to be thinking about Xmas cards lol) but I needed to come up with a design for a friend's craft class. I saw the colour combo over at Cr84fn Colour Challenge, and thought it'd be fun to try something different for a festive cards in terms of colours.
I've layered kraft, white card and this yellow/gold damask paper, and got my doilies out again (can't seem to get enough of these recently!) topped with a stitched circle. I love music / script papers at Christmas, and used my fave 7Gypsies paper for the central rectangle, which has been edged with TH Brackets die. I've used hand rolled roses, made by cutting a spiral into a circle, then inking the edges, spritzing with water, scrunching and fold the edges back and then rolling into a rose. All out of simple white paper. I added a touch of glitter as it is a Christmas card! The Cherry Blossom paper blooms have been flecked with paint for a 'snowy' look, while the leaves were distressed around the edges and inked.
The fun part of this card is the pull out tag. Just a standard kraft tag I decorated and stamped which has been tucked under the square, which was lifted with foam to allow the tag to move freely.
scrunched seam binding, which I coloured with a yellow Pro Marker and ran under the tap to dilute the colour, and pearl snowflake tops the tag off.
