Christmas with no red or green!!

Ho, ho, ho....Happy Wednesday!

I hope you're having a fab week...why the festive feel I hear you ask...well its time for another challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin! This month we'd like to see projects that feature no red or green....now this might sound simple...but be warned...do not overlook the images in your backing papers! I am speaking from experience as my original DT card for this challenge had a brown and white colour theme to it.....until I realised that I'd used backing paper covered in robins...complete with their red breasts! Doh!!

Anyway, here is my card for this month's challenge.....

 
In some ways I'm quite glad that I had to go back to the drawing board as I actually prefer this card to the first one I created!
 
I've coloured my image with my Promarkers and then I've created my background with a collection of blue papers, both patterned and plain. Finally I added my sentiment and some faux stitching to the edge.
 
Pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin blog to see all the other gorgeous DT cards that have been created this month. You can also learn about the fab prize that is on offer this month, kindly donated by our fab sponsor....
