12 Months of Christmas Cards Link-up Colour Challenge

I'm ticking off another Christmas card made for my 2015 stash. How am I keeping on track so well, you may ask?! I've been invited to join the Merry Maidens Design team at the 12 Months of Christmas Cards Link Up!
This month's sponsor is Sami Stamps and I got to play with a cute image called Christmas Gift Poodle, as well as some fabulous patterned papers from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles called Bauble Bonanza.
This month, the optional twist to your Christmas card entries is a Colour Challenge:
Instead of your typical holiday colours, they want to see cards using non-traditional colours like the ones in the photo above.
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card showcases at least THREE of the colours from the palette below.  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $12.00 gift card from Sami Stamps.
I used these colours as my background, coordinating my ribbons and extra large bauble to embellish. How's your stash of holiday cards coming along? Need a boost? Then make a couple cards for the Link Up for your free paper! That's enough inspiration for me! LOL!!
And as always, crafters, have fun!!

Sponsor and Prize Info for this challenge:
  • Guest Sponsor:  Sami Stamps
  • Prize being offered:  $12.00 gift card from the store for one random winner chosen from those who participate in the optional theme.
  • Additional Sponsor: Décosse's Dynamite Doodles
  • Prize being offered: One free digital paper to everyone who links up a minimum of two cards to the challenge.  Cards can be anything goes for this prize, they only have to follow the theme if they want a chance at the sponsor's prize.  The mini set of six digital papers called Bauble Bonanza, will also be offered up as a prize to one random winner.

Hi Pat, I see your card. I did not realize we would post on the same day. I love that bling on there. Your image is so cute. It was fun using different colors than normal for a Christmas card. I hope you will enjoy being on the team with us. Edwina Brown
