Non Traditional Colors at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hi There

I am very pleased to be a GD at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge for this fortnight.  The Theme is Non Traditional Colors.  Thank you to Cindy and the team for having me!

Fitztown are Sponsoring this Challenge.  I have used image Winter 8 which you can find along with all the other fabulous Fitztown Images here.

Here is how I created my Card.  I coloured the image with Promarkers.  This is the second set of Sepia Tone colours.  The Card Blank is a 7" Square and my Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzil Basics Brown Shade.  Both the Background Papers are from LOTV Krafty Christmas Paper Pad.  I have used several dies on this card.  I cut two of the Memory Box Frosty Wreaths, one in White and one in Bazill Fawn.  I used Robert Addams Poinsettia Die again cutting these in White and Fawn and I also cut a Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish in White.  I Hand Tied the Big Bow using White and a Beige colour Organza Ribbon.  To finish I added Brown Pearl Gems.

I am pleased with the end result! There isn't much difference between this set of colours and the colours that I used for my first Sepia Project.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  I hope you can come back again soon!
