Warm or Cool?

 Yesterday I made a pair of Christmas cards for 3 challenges:

Color My Heart

52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Atlantic Hearts 

Two of the challenges were color challenges, and very different color schemes. Color My Heart had very cool colors, and 52CCT had very warm colors. So I used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts for both cards, which lended itself well to several colors because of the strips of paper behind the main panel.

My colors for the Color Dare may not be exact, but the ones I had were the closest I could find: Sugarplum, Grey Flannel, Lilac Mist, Juniper, and Sage.

For 52 CCT, I used Cranberry, Sunset, and Canary.

Which is your favorite? Warm or cool?

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Lilac Mist, Sugarplum, Juniper, Grey Flannel, Cranberry, Sunset, Canary, Slate
Stamps: Yuletide Carol, Yuletide Greetings
Ink: Intense Black, Sage, Sugarplum
Other: Tri Blend Markers, No Worries sequins, I Heart Us sequins
