Festive Friday #26 Challenge

Well it's Festive Friday time again! This week is a colour challenge using non-traditional colours. I do love a colour challenge. You can go a bit nuts and use your creative flair just making sure you use the colours set out in the challenge.

The colours for this week are:

I do love this colour combo and I have used it alot in my cards but never in a Christmas Card. My card for the challenge is

I used the stamp set Welcome Christmas and gave the card a bit of a vintage feel which these colours lend themselves to very well.

I also made up my own embossing powder by mixing some White Embossing powder with some Dazzling diamons Stampin' Glitter to give it a bit of a subtle Christmas sparkle. Not sure if you can see it to well in the photo though.

Have a go and join in the fun at Nicole Derendorfs blog (click here) and make a card for this weeks challenge. Great way to get a head start on your christmas cards by making one or two cards for the weekly challenge.

Have Fun and Happy Stampin'
