Christmas Tradition?

At Paper Cupcakes this week DT member Debbie has challenged us to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. The colors I chose were teal and plum but they aren't showing up here at those colors--darn camera. I still kinda like the way it turned out though.  The design team have created some awesome cards for your inspiration so I hope you will stop by the challenge blog then create your card to enter this weeks challenge.  You are not required to use a Paper Cupcakes image but there is a free one there should you decide you want to use it.
Looking forward to seeing your project.

Here are the items I used to create this card:
  • DP KaiserCraft Utopia
  • Spellbinder's Labels 9
  • Copics: G24-21-20-94-99; BG05-07-0000; RV99-95-93-91
  • DecoArt Texture, Diamond Glaze, Crystal glitter for the icing
  • Glossy Accents to give dimension to the berries and candy
  • Pine cones, poinsettias & ornament from stash
  • MS branch punch
  • Mermaid Stickles
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon.  I am also entering this card in Stamp Something Sketch Challenge this week. Hope to see your entry at Paper Cupcakes this week.
"Hugs" Carol

This is wonderful, teal and plum sound like a gorgeous combo to me, and even if the colours onscreen don't look like they do in real life, the look great onscreen too! :D
