Deacon in Raspberry, Chocolate and Cream

Bugaboo - Catch the Bug card #3 and the challenge is to use the colours 'Raspberry, Chocolate and Cream! Easy peasy right and quite wonderful. I would never have made a Christmas card with these colours on my own initiative but  I do like it. Had to search high and low in my papers stash for some cream paper though.

Stamp: Bugaboo digital stamp 'Deacon Candy Cane'
Sentiment: Stampin Up's 'Petite Pairs'
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes'; Stampin Up 'fancy fan'
Die Cuts:   Spellbinders  scalloped ovals;   Impressive Obsessions Dies -the snowflakes
Colour: Prismacolor Markers and Copics
Punch:  Stampin Up 'Word Window'(see sentiment)
