Baubles- The Sugar bowl 41 and Basic Grey 26

This week's challenge over at the Sugarbowl is a sketch challenge.
I had such a hard time with this challenge.

At first I thought what a great way to use Baubles, but as I choose the DP it just went down hill.
I think my coloring came out great, but this sketch was difficult.
Instead of a star, I scanned the Basic Grey DP Mistle Toe and Pears and blew up the snowflake.
I originally thought that would look cool since i used the original DP behind it on one of the layers.
But the layers cover up the base DP which is also by BG and has ornaments all over it.
I added some pearl embellishments and I think that helped,but this is not one of my favorite cards!
And since pearls are the challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges I can use it there too!

Gena, your card isn't as bad you think. Gorgeous coloring! You are very clever to have enlarged the snowflake behind her. I am pretty much challenged in mixing patterned papers myself so I am no help in that department. But if I may suggest the snowflake to be either dark blue (the pearls would really pop) or add a 2nd snowflake behind the first one but with a darker shade. just my 2 cents...
Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl Challenge!
