The Paper Players - Season's Greetings!

Winter has arrived in the Midwest. There's no snow accumulation yet, but it's really cold. I'm not feeling brave enough to venture out today so I'm staying in and doing a little crafting. Today I'm playing along at the Paper Players. This time they have a fun color challenge. I'm all about non traditional colors so this one was easy for me!
This would be a beautiful color combination for some florals too! But here's what I made!
I started out with background papers in Melon and Pink. This is the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa collection.
I inked up the boy and girl from the Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Friends stamp set in green and pink. They're feeding the little bird. I used Gold Shimmer Seed Beads to look like bird food. The Holiday Shimmer Sequin Mix is the perfect color combo for this challenge.  There's even a few sparkly snowflakes in the mix!

The sentiment is stamped on a Stitched Labels One die cut, and a Scallop Oval makes a frame to center the scene. I added distress ink inside the oval frame to add more color and keep it the center of attention.
Ready to play along? You can get all the details here at The Paper Players blog! Have a great day!
