Non-Traditional Colors for Christmas.

I am  very traditional when it comes to making Christmas cards but I have steered out of my element in making this non-traditional look for this card. Found a piece of  paper that I had printed using a free digital download from Gina K's Stamp TV.  Just the right size to cut in two parts and use on a mat of GKD PL Brown CS layered on a base card of Oyster Pearl CS. Cut an ornament in Brown from an adhesive backed CS from a DCWV matstack using a Cuttlebug Ornament Die.  Trimmed it with a brown and pink organdy ribbon and some pearls. Easy to attach to the card. Made the sentiment with stamp from GKD "Fanciful Tags" by Nina and used Spellbinders Fancy Tag Die.
Challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Use the sketch shown to the right. I used bling on ornament instead of at bottom of card and think this is fussy and fancy enough to qualify.
There's Magic in the Air: Debbie challenged us to use non-traditional Christmas colors and make a Christmas card. Will do another one with a Paper Cupcake image but this card fit their challenge.
Stamp TV Challenge: Make holiday with non-tradtional holiday colors.

This is my final post for today!
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa

Wowzers you've been one busy elf over there! All the cards are just gorgeous. I think my absolute favorite is the one with all the dp and Theresa's tree.
