Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog the theme is Non-traditional Christmas Colors.  We are being sponsored by one of my personal favorites, The Paper Shelter!  The image I used for my card is Fairy Christmas Eve.

I went a wee bit crazy on this card, but was happy with the end result!  I used Pink, burgundy, cream and olive as my non-traditional colors.  I added several dies, flowers, a doily, ribbon, lace, twine, trim, pearls, buttons...just about every imaginable thing.  LOL I made this card, but still I look close and see new things I forgot I added!  haha

Thanks for looking!

Karen, your card is just gorgeous. Love the lace and pearls and my goodness you have a lot of flowers which are stunning. This card has to weigh a ton and I hope you are hand delivering this one since the postage would be too much, hehe.
