Christmas in July - With a Twist!


I really enjoyed this challenge!  This is my first Design Team card for 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is Christmas in July with an optional twist.  The twist is to use no red or green on your card.  Success!  It really is quite difficult to think of Christmas with no red or green.

The image is from this week's sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps; it's called Winter Robin.


The paper is from Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.  The die is from Memory Box.  
Copics:  B91, BG0000, BG000, BG10, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, 100, E25, YR15, YR16, YR18

Such a pretty card and I love the delicate corners with the pearls. It's nice to see a Christmas card that's not red and green.

This is just gorgeous! I'm loving the non-trad colours (it's so hard to make a Christmas card that isn't red and green!) Fab image, and the pearls on the delicate corner die-cuts are so pretty! Thanks for joining in at The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge!
