Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 55 - Colour challenge Brown, Cream and Pink

Hello All
Today is the launch of the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.
It is Hosted by Vix who asks that you make an item (card/tag/altered thingy) using ONLY the colours Brown/Cream/Pink. You can use other colours for faces but otherwise just brown, cream and pink.
We are sponsored today by ONE STOP CARD CRAFTS who are offering a £10 voucher for their store as a prize.
I decided to steer away from cute and so who says Christmas has to be red and green?
My card uses a lovely Christmas Decoupage stamp from Imagination.
I have stamped the image onto several different pieces of paper from my stash and then cut and mounted them as illustrated.
I added some ribbon, vellum, a ribbon slider and some micro beads. 
I just loved this colour combo.
In fact I liked it so much that I made a second card with some of the left over pieces.
This time I mounted it onto some brown gingham paper.
I used a small square punch to create this card candy.
Some different ribbon this time, but another ribbon slider.
I hope you have fun with this new challenge, I certainly did.
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
I am staying in Peterboro at the moment with the lovely Janice and Andy from Sir Stampalot.
We have managed another relatively early night again tonight but I am sure we will be back to our usual midnight finishes tomorrow.
I had better get to bed now so that I can make the most of it.
Don't forget to pop in and say hi at the shop, and of course don't forget to enter the challenge.
Nite, nite
