Non-traditional Christmas


So is everyone out there scrambling to get Christmas cards done??
I always tell myself I'm gonna start making them in July so I don't feel so rushed in
December, but what happens to me EVERY year?  I feel rushed!!  But it's
okay, somehow it'll all come together in the end.  Even if I have to buy
a few store bought ones! LOL!

  Well I absolutely love non traditional Christmas colors so
today I have "Winter Marci" from La-La Land Crafts in a gorgeous
purple hue.  I love purple and blues together so I thought I would try
this combo out on a winter card.








The papers and the seam binding ribbon are from my stash.  I really like
the multicolored chevron paper.  It has a Missoni look to it and feels like it
should be on a sweater.  Hehe.The crochet lace is Melissa Frances and I just love it!! 
I ended up buying it in all the pastel colors she had.  The cute
 little purple clip holding the sentiment and the snowflake brad are
from Michaels.  The charm was purchased off Etsy.

Other products I used:
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
MS: pine punch
Flowers: WOC and Prima
 sentiment: LOTV

This is another one of those images that I colored over a year
ago when I was first learning to use my copics but is
just now being used on a project.  I know the purples were colored
with V91, V93, V95, and V99.  The rest of colors I didn't write down.

Challenges I would like to enter:
