Non-Traditional X-Mas Colors

Sweet Stamps Challenge:

Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create. You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!! There's plenty of wonderful things to choose from!

Here's the card I created:
 I have to admit, this is the first time I really created a Christmas card with orange and blue colors as the main colors!  Kind of fun!

I started off by stamping "Lace Tree" with Shades Dye Ink "Forest" on a green patterned paper from the "Desert Blooms" 6x6 First Edition Premium Paper Pad.  The star was from the die set "Christmas Tree Multi Frame Set".  I then painted the star with "Peach" Creative Inspirations Paint to give it some shimmer.  I love the font of the sentiment "Merry Christmas Script" in which I used on the front.  The other patterned paper I used on this card is from the "Christmas Joy" 6x6 First Edition Premium Paper Pad.  The front was finished off by adding some "Orange" rhinestones! And in the inside I used the "May The Peace" sentiment.

Make sure to check out all the other DT blogs and leave some love!

Have a wonderful day!
