I struggled with this challenge. I was not feeling very creative, so I am going to create a new card, stop back later today for another creation! :)

This week challenge is to make a card using non-traditional Christmas Colors! I failed miserably on this but will try again. LOL

Here are the details:

Stamp Sets: Floral BG, Peace Be Unto You

Cardstock: Vintage Violet, Basic Black, Almost Amethyst, Mellow Moss, very Vanilla
Accessories: scalloped Edge, White Gel Pen, Twill, Vintage Violet stitched ribbon, Pewter Hodgepodge, Dew Drops
