ARE THESE COLORS TOO WEIRD FOR CHRISTMAS?

Hello again to all my crafting buddies! Now for my second card of the day…. If you missed my first one, you can click here to see it.

This one is for Case Study Challenge #64 and The Play Date Café PDCC 106. Now the challenge I gave myself to to make this a Christmas card using those pretty PDCC colors! And, here is the card:

Here is the inspiration from both challenges:

 

Admittedly these are not traditional Christmas colors by any definition but I wanted to see how it would turn out.  I am still deciding if it looks like a Christmas card, but I do love, love, love the card design and how it turned out. What do you think???

DCWV textured card stock and K & Company Christmas paper left over from last year were used in this card. Prima flowers, pink ribbon with a bell, and paper piercing embellish it along with some Spellbinders die cuts and Inkadinkado stamp.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.

I hope you like my card and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….
