Basic Grey meets Papertake weekly

I've had to double up again because I've had such a busy week so far. I've been meaning to do these challenges all week and, to be honest, my previous 2 attempts were pretty poor which is why I'm late with this one.

The Basic Grey Challenge is this week is a colour combo challenge.
" we would like to see your creations using one of the following color combos :)
Green & Red/Maroon
Brown & Cream
Blue & Gold/Yellow/Orange"

I haven't seen many Xmas blue and gold cards, so I thought I'd give that a try.

I have used the Papertake Weekly sketch created by the talented Katharina as the basis for this card.

Items used:
Papers: Basic Grey two scoops. Gold card
Stamps WOJ 'Willow with lantern' and Basic Grey 'Birds of a Feather' (gold embossed on the blue paper)
Blue and Bronze Gems, Yellow Ribbon and Xmas sentiment from my stash.
Snowflakes gifted to me by my friend Gina
Water Colour pencils
