A Spoon Full of Sugar - Non Traditional Christmas Colours

Our Challenge this week was picked by our very own Shary and she challenged us to make a Non traditional coloured Xmas card.
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Elizabeth From softpencil digital stamps,who has very kindly offered the winner a voucher of $15 for her shop.

I have chosen to use this wonderful digi image by Mo Manning. I have used it before and coloured it in traditional green and red, but this is such a versatile image and looks equally as beautiful in these pastel colours. The papers are by My Minds Eye, flowers by prima and ribbon from my stash. The flourish was cut with a quickutz die and I have not put a sentiment on this card as I think it speaks for itself and also I thought it looked busy enough without adding to it.
I have used the fab sketch from Truly Scrumptious this week.

The DT have come up with some gorgeous samples this week and you can check them all out Here

Winter has definately arrived here in the Highlands of Scotland and the grass outside my office is completely white at the moment. We had a little flurry of snow on Sunday but nothing lying on the ground yet.
