Winter Wishes (what IS nude?)

Stamps: Teeny Trees, Bitty Banners (Waltzing Mouse); Season Sparkle (My Cute Stamps)
Ink: Angel Pink (Memento); Versamark (Tsukineko)
Font: Sevillana; Narkism
Other: Silver & Gold detail embossing powder
OK, this week at The Play Date Cafe, it's gold, silver & nude. 
Not sure about nude.  I guess nude is subjective - dependent on the colour of your skin.  My skin is pasty white in the winter, with bits of pale brown in the summer.  My skin is never the pale pink I have used in the card above.  Except once in Cancun when I overdid it & got sunburn.  When that peeled, then I got the colour above.  So, I present my card to you: a fusion of silver, gold & peeled sunburn!

The Christmas baubles are embossed, the sentiment & frame are digital.  In case you are wondering, yes, the 2 slivers of mirriboard at the bottom ARE covering up a mistake.  It started as a tiny flaw in the paper, that nobody but me would have noticed, but I manage to upgrade it quite spectacularly so that it caught your eye straight away.  Hence the silver & gold strips.  Yes, it IS silver, even though it looks white.
