A Non Traditional Christmas at Spoon Full of Sugar!

Tuesday's = A Spoon Full of Sugar! and today we are asked to make a Christmas card with NON traditional colors. Now my card really doesn't look to non traditional here, but in person it does. The colors are a dark pink and light green in person - but in my photo... darn... oh well I hope you like it anyway!

My card base is a dark pink - almost salmon colored card stock with a bling shine to it. I then used a pretty light green with pink Christmas trees pattern paper, I think it is from Basic Grey? I think. The next layer is a scrap of My Minds Eye Dreamy paper, matches the pink card stock pretty well I thought. I doodle stitched the pieces down - then punched out a Martha Stewart Extra Large double border punch out of white for the bottom. My image is from Alota Rubber Stamps I have always loved this window scene stamp from Alota... It is called Winter Window and I think it makes a really nice Christmas card image.

I colored a night scene with my Copics, then used Stickles Lace for the snow, and gold Stickles for the top of the star - Really sparkles in person! The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber Stamps and is a wonderful "Merry Christmas" for your cards - really different and pretty! Don't you just love all the swirls in it -

Ok... so maybe it doesn't look to NON traditional - pink and green is becoming more traditional probably. But oh well, I tried. LOL  Now pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see the wonderful DT cards in all sorts of colors!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
HUGS and -
