a moxie fab and playdate cafe combination

ok, i just thought i'd sneak in another quick card in between unpacking and working since my little man(n) is dreaming up some inspiration for me.

anyway, this card is for two challenges! yahoo! look at me multitasking while multitasking! the perfectly placed pleats challenge in the moxie fab world and the play date cafe color challenge (green, white and melon) were the inspirations for this christmas card. first off, here are the color swatches for the play date cafe:



and here's super duper clean and simple card!



i used a rectangle of textured green cardstock and folded it over and over (think of a fan). then i flattened it out and used my circle punch (but only put the cardstock in halfway) to create the jagged edges (like a holy leaf)! then i had these really great pinky-red buttons for the holly berries!



the sentiment is by lawn fawn (of course! lol!) and it's from the bows and holly stamp set. it's just a really simple card, but i think it does the trick!
enjoy!
