Non traditional Christmas card



The color challenge for today was pretty in pink and wild wasabi. Emily also suggested we try out a Christmas card with these colors and sh was right! Not traditional Christmas colors, but still VERY festive. I'm so happy with this card! The only *official* Christmas set I kept here with me was snow flurries, so I added the swirl from the Priceless set for a little more interest. While placing a workshop order the other day, I added a pack of build a brads for myself (SHHHH, don't tell dh ~ we already have lots of stuff to mail out!). How cute is that brad??!! I also decided to jazz up the card base by accenting the dots on the swirl with a white gel pen. Added some piercing here and there, a little ribbon and that's it!

card info: paper ~ wasabi, pretty in pink, shimmer white. stamps ~ snow flurries, priceless, holidays and wishes. ink ~ wasabi, black. access. ~ marker, gel pen, piercer, build a brad, ribbon.
