Happy yellow Noel

Hello there,
This card is a rather unusual colour combination for Christmas, yellow, shades of turquoise and black to make it all pop. I find it hard to use these types of colours for Christmas but am quite pleased with this in the end.

Card recipe

8 x 8 white card blank
John Next Door dies: Stitch Dot Squares, Snowflower and Stencil Sentiment
Presscut Star Die single layer
Tonic Snowflakes
Black card for the mats
Yellow card for the two layers
Clarity Indian Summer Designer paper used behind the cut out die and for the snowflakes and flowers
Gold brads
