Non-traditional Christmas colors

Almost all the Christmas cards I have made this year have featured traditional red and green, or at least red (sometimes with silver or kraft). So it was fun to make a card with non-traditional colors.

This card was inspired by the BE Inspired photo at The Alley Way Stamps, and features TAWS stamps as well.  The ornament is a free digi, which was cut out, colored with pencils, and   glitter was added to the top part. The strip along side it is meant to resemble snowflakes, and it includes stamps from Delicate Doilies set by TAWS.  Everything was stamped in Ranger Stream colored ink, but I used several generations of it to get some variation in color.

The card is for the following challenges:

The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired #43, inspiration photo
Totally Papercraft challenge, Christmas with non-traditional colors
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, use a stamp
Sister Act Card Challenge #37, Anything Goes
Just 4 Fun Challenge, Merry Christmas
