Christmas Greetings

Hello friends! Happy weekend :o)  According to the weather channel we are going to have a cold and snowy day (after nearly 70 degrees on Friday).  What a perfect time to share a Christmas card with you!  This second week of April at 52{Christmas} Card Throwdown, our hostess Deborah has a color challenge for us to try.  

Take a look at the 52CCT April Color Challenge:

To be eligible for TOP Honours you must use at least 3 of the colors in the photo.  
Neutrals such as white, cream, black, grey, gold or silver can be used on your card base,
embellishments or inks.  However the main colors must come from the photo.

Deborah has kindly given us a reference of Stampin Up colors that are very similar
to the dots in the graphic (sometimes computers show the colors differently):
Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, River Rock
Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue

Here's my card using Baja Breeze, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
and some copic colors that are in different shades of blues.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges #19 - No Patterned Paper
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April - Anything Goes

Please go check out the lovely creations from the rest of our talented DT at 52CCT!
Our Guest Designer this month is Pat Couder - so excited to have her with us.
I hope to be seeing your lovely Christmas card in our gallery this week.
