A Traditional Colour Q

Evening all,

Another Colour Q challenge has triggered a mild dose of Christmas panic.....it's an indication that another week has flown by and we're even closer to Christmas. I wonder if Santa could perhaps put it on hold until next year...

There I was thinking the holiday cards were all done and dusted and Arielle comes up with a combo of traditional colours screaming Christmas - I used the current sketch over at Cardabilities for a bit of inspiration:

It's been a while since I pulled out PTI's Take a Bough set - an oldie but definitely a goodie. I found some absolutely ancient Christmas themed papers which I think may be Basic Grey and added a few sequins, tartan ribbon and twine. Come to think of it, there's a bit of everything on this card but if you can't go a bit over the top at Christmas, when can you?

Check out the rest of the design team's gorgeous creations and then see what you can come up with using the chosen colours....in fact, why not really challenge yourself and do something other than a Christmas theme?!

Hope you have a productive day and thanks for stopping,

Claire x
