*Non-Traditional Christmas Colours*

One of the ladies who takes my classes at the Pantry came into the store this morning to show us several of the Christmas cards she has come up with this year. Brenda, your cards were wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing them with me.

While we were chatting, we were talking about how we like to throw in a few non-traditional coloured Christmas cards. She had a stunning one that was black, white and red. Beautiful.

While I was blog surfing today, I was inspired by two things.... first, was this card of Stephanie's. Second was the colours in the Colour Throwdown Challenge.

And then I got to thinking about my conversation with Brenda this morning and thought to myself, "why not?".

So, I give to you, a very non-traditional coloured Christmas card! The colours are white, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Pale Plum. I used my Cuttlebug and the Snowflakes embossing folder and my square Nestabilities (to make the Chocolate Chip frames). I also used two punches by EK Success, some chocolate satin ribbon and some bling.

I am so thrilled with how this card turned out!

Thanks to everyone for the ideas and inspiration!
