FTTC93 Christmas is coming!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! 

I can't believe half of November is already over and the holidays are right around the corner!!! We have a fun challlenge going on over at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC93 blog!!! Dee is challenging us to create a *Christmas* card or project!!! I'm so happy I 'm adding one more card to my stash!!! How about you join us too???

I l.o.v.e non-traditonal holiday colors on my X-mas cards!!! So when I saw Mona's fabulous color combo CR84FN4 I knew these would be the colors for my card today!!! It also fits this weeks No Time To Stamp Challenge #165 ~ using Not-Tradition Chrsitmas Colors!!! I combined the colors with this weeks awesome SSSC93 Sketch.

I used the NEW and super cute Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes Set. If you have not seen the new Flourishes November Release then you can check it out right here!!!

I inked my "snowwoman" in Memento Black and colored her with these Copic Markers ~ BV000, BV08, BV13 and a Colorless Blender!!!  The bedazzled snowflake was created with the Sizzlits Snowflake. I also added more sparkles to my sweet snowgirl!!! My DP is from Kaiserkraft Lilac Avenue Collection and the matching Purple Satin Ribbon is from Martha Stewart. The layered DP was embossed with the SU Folder Northern Flurry. At last I embellished the card with a matching Purple Button, a Purple Rhinestone Brad and some fabbo Silver Beaded Cord!!!

Don't forget to stop by ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their holiday creations!!!

Thank you for stopping by today. Have fun making a card!!! Hugs ~S~

Hallo Silke,
deine Karte sieht so elegant aus, und die Farben sind eine Wucht. Vielleicht sollte man doch einmal von dem klassichen rot, weiss und gruen wegkommen.
Ich komme immer gerne auf deinen blog.
Lg Conny
