Non-Traditional Christmas

We have a new Challenge over at Holly Jolly which is Non-Traditional Colours.

 

I love non-traditional colours, I think they can look so wonderful and they can be a great surprised when received.

 

Our challenge is hosted by Limited Run and Bugaboo, so there are a few prizes available so we would love you to join us.

 

I have used an image from Limited Run called Catching a Snowflake and the non-traditional colours used were inspired by the paper had in my stash.

 

The layout for my card has been inspired by the current sketch at Sketchy Colors Challenge.

 

Here is my card:

 

P1020041_edited-1

 

I have used an Oval Collections Die, the Petra Large Oval Die by Marianne Design, some lace from my stash, the Word Window Punch, some bling and the ribbon is Whisper White Organza Ribbon.

 

You cannot really see it but I have added some glitter too around the trim of the coat and hat.

 

This is the sketch:

I think the purple and green is a great idea for a non-trad colour scheme - I love that ornate frame and the lace. Thanks a lot for joining in with my Festive 48. Hope you can link up again next week. Marina http://myperfectlifeuk.blogspot.co.uk
