52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - February Color Challenge #14

Happy February ya' all!  As the hostess at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for this second week in February I have chosen a non-traditional color scheme.  I have to tell you that when I initially picked these colors I had something quite different in mind than what I ended up making. Here's my card:

and the inside:

I do like how it turned out and I have lots of other ideas for this somewhat unusual and non-traditional color scheme for Christmas cards.  I added some sponged color around all the layers to give it a little depth (seemed a bit too plain or flat to me without it).  What do you think?  Is it too odd of a color combo or are you up to the challenge?  

Please go visit the site and see what the rest of the DT has come up with.  I hope you will decide to join us this week at 52CCT!   Til next time... Hugs and Happy Crafting! 


  1. Danielle what a tough colour combo you have chosen for us this week. This is going to be a challenge for me but you have rocked it! I love this stamp x

  2. This is absolutely fabulous, Danielle! LOVE the bits of bling by your star! HUGS and have a great weekend! :)

  3. Great use of those non-traditional colours, Danielle! I'm a little scared right now, but I will certainly be giving them a go! Hop on over to my blog because I have nominated you for a Liebster award! xx

  4. That is a fabulous card with those non traditional colours Danielle! I love the perfect touch of the yellow bling! Wonderful job on the inside too my dear!
