Crafty Ann's Challenge # 27 - A Christmas Card using Non Traditional Colours

I used two Anna Griffin papers for this 8 by 8 card. A pleated ribbon made from both papers covers the join. The upper half of the card has a snow flake and a sentiment cut from Craft Robo. The lower half has two baubles from Crafty Ann's digis printed on a spare piece of the top paper, cut out and partially covered with gilding flakes. A ribbon tops them off. Half way through I thought this is looking quite golden and that is a traditional colour oops! The papers are more yellow orchre in real life, honest.
Thanks for taking a look, your comments are much appreciated.
