FTTC199 - Non-traditional Christmas Colors

Hi there. How was your weekend?  Ours was good.  I went to the gym on Saturday morning with a girlfriend, went shopping with Mom and Kara on Saturday night (to Charming Charlie's...my first time there....SUCH a cute store!), and then on Sunday morning I went out for coffee and bagels with another girlfriend. We were going to go on a holiday hayride through lights on Sunday night, but the rain messed with those plans.

It's Timeless Tuesday time and Ally is our hostess this week. She's challenging us to make a Christmas card or project using non-traditional Christmas colors...so no red or green this week.  Here's my card:


I went with purple and cream using papers from Mitten Weather. The stamp is from Trimmed With Love.  The circle sentiment is up on foam tape and so is the large snowflake embossed panel. The layout is Fall-to Layout #220 from the Clean & Simple blog.

Be sure to stop by the Timeless Tuesday blog for all the details of the challenge and, of course, you can find even more inspiration by hopping around to see what the rest of the FTTC girls have created for you....
