Non-Traditional Christmas Challenge

Good Morning! As you know, it's Monday so time for another Christmas card. I'm so excited about the number of cards I have completed - I'm so ahead of the game this year and it feels GOOD! The challenge on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Blog was issued by Sankari. She asked us to make a card using non-traditional colors - no red, green or blue!

I bought a DCWV Christmas Stack last year and have wanted to use some of the papers from there. One of the color schemes is pink and black - well that is definitely non-traditional, so I went with it!

The image was a RAK which I colored with my Copics. I added a few buttons a small bow and tadaa - a cute Christmas card done!

I've been gather a few items for my blog candy give away. I'm so happy to have been blogging for a year and to have so many visit and comment on my blog is absolutely wonderful to me!! THANK YOU ALL!! Check back as I hope to have the details up about the giveaway tomorrow. I'll be posting a Halloween card tomorrow too - see ya then!!
