non-traditional Christmas card


wow! so it's been a while since I've done a challenge... especially for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge or 2 Sketches 4 You! Well, when I saw this week's color challenge, I don't know why, but I wanted to make a non-traditional colored Christmas card with them :) I love Dawn's color challenges- so great! And who doesn't love 2S4Y's sketches- also great! This is Shanna's bonus sketch. So I combined the two- fairly happy with the outcome. I'm on vaca, so I don't have all my supplies with me, I'd probably do that tag part a bit differently if I made this again, which I might! :) I was ruffling through all my papers that I brought, and trying to figure out how to put the colors together, when I realized I'd brought this ribbon with me, and bingo! It had 3 of the colors- rust, chocolate, and a light teal/blue :D perfect... and thus, the card was born!

This is beautiful! I love the muted tone-on-tone cardstock, and the holly punch to the tag is a great touch! Great job with the 2S4U sketch!
