Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

Non-traditional Christmas 016

When you think of Christmas, if you’re anything like me I think of deep reds and greens, silver and gold and of course rich blues – well, I have a soft spot for jewel toned blue wrapping paper!  This week, over at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, we’ve been challenged to use non-traditional Christmas colors.  Well, I think this card definitely fits the bill.  Here’s the inspirational photo…I think you can tell where my inspiration came from – Mine is a version of this tree!


And just to toot the horn a little….I was an honorable mention in last weeks challenge!  If you missed it, be sure to catch my fun snowy drift project and video here.
