Non-traditional Christmas colours



I thought I'd better make the most of feeling relatively festive and get some more Crimbo cards made up. This one uses a Tiddly Inks image.
Challenges I'm entering:
Tiddly Inks - olive, purple and mustard. I love the idea of this combo, but I was having trouble deciding what to do with it, and then I decided to see if I could make it look festive.
City Crafter Challenges - use a digi
One Stitch At A Time - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas + share a tip. My tip is not to limit yourself to specifically Christmas stash when doing your cards this year, and hopefuly that way you won't be bored stiff by the time you've finished all your Christmas projects. My card above doesn't use any Christmas paper or embellishments at all, and I love it :D
Riley and Co. - followed the sketch
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge - holiday card
Critter Challenges - Christmas
For Fun Challenges - use metal, hope my tiny brads count
