Untraditional holidays...



I took some quick crafting time today to create this card. I used some untraditional holiday colors for this card...a salmon, mint green, white and kraft brown combo. The digi is from InStyle and I colored her with my Copics and prisma pencils. Used scrap paper once again (I just love using up scraps...no waste here!) and popped her up with 3-d squares. Added puffy paint to her outfit along with some clear glitter for that added shine! Then I used flower soft for the snow she is dancing on....so cute! :) Added a button with a hemp bow and distressed and blackened the edges around the sentiment and added some plain white ribbon for the finishing touches. So what do you think....is untraditional just as pretty for the holidays??

Challenges:
InStyle Stamps over the hump blog candy contest - snow and must use one of their images.
InStyle - color challenge (salmon, mint green and brown)
Crafty Calendar - winter sparkle (sparkle is in the puffy paint on her outfit)
Stamp Something - Winter Wonderland
Simon Says - Let it snow
Practical Scrappers - anything x-mas (oops, I am a few hours late for this one)Secret Crafter - snow
DCRU - holiday feel

The anime image is so cute! The patterned paper you used screams fresh and fun...I love it! A retro feel with a fresh modern take. Fabulous job!
