So, the third Kaisercraft Saturday challenge was an anything goes, but using this colour scheme:
Pretty, don't you think? I thought so too!! So much so that this card only took me 20 minutes to produce - pretty quick when you consider I used sit for four hours and come up with only one! lol!

Did you ever think that Christmas themed paper could make such pretty non-Christmas colour combination? I didn't either, but desperate times call for desperate measures crafters. I don't really have blue themed paper in my 12x12 Kaisercraft paper stash, so I had to really dig deep with the imagination.
The patterned paper is from the Christmas Collections 6" Paper Pad (which strangely enough does not have a product code on it?), the blue cardstock is a scrap piece that I scrounged from my pile so I don't know what brand it is really. The buttons are chipboard elements from the Up, Up and Away Collection, CB111. I used the Kaisercraft self-adhesive pearls again, SB713; and used a sentiment from the Mini Clear Stamp Set called Friends, CS920. The silver twine is no-name brand and the rose ribbon is Prima.
You'll notice that I used an edge punch on this card as well, it's a Pick it Up punch, but I'm not sure what it's called. Sorry. I used it on the card front, as well as on the inner.
I finished off the envelope with a few more pearls - plain, simple and elegant. It was a fussy yet non-fussy card, and I wish the photographs would do it more justice.
Hope you are having just as much fun with the challenges as I am!
