Christmas Card Club # 26 Non Traditional Colours.

Good morning everybody.  Well this our final card for this year - but we will be starting  all over again in the new year.  This time it  was GranMargaret's turn to choose and as you can see her choice was to use non-traditional colours on our cards.

My Card

My card uses pink and grey which certainly qualifies for non traditional colours.  The papers are extremely old stash from Papermania, I think, but they were in my bits box so I may be wrong.

Topper - Lili Of The Valley
Poinsettias - Old stash
Diecuts - Spellbinders
Sentiment - computer generated.

The poinsettias originally had yellow stamens at the centre which I removed and replaced with pink glitter. A nice and easy card which is actually pretty flat so I think it will be okay for posting.

Have a great weekend everybody.

  14. Very pretty and the pink glitter centers looks lovely on the poinsettias.
    I am collecting flatter card ideas for next year. I was in shock at the depth of some of my cards...resulting in some being mailed at small parcel rates!

  15. Hi Christine
    Non traditional but beautiful. Love how you have glittered the centres of the flowers. Yes, Mr D had a shock at the Post Office yesterday when I sent him with bundles, so flat is good lol!
    Hope you and John are well.
    Best wishes,
    Ang x
