Challenge #23--Christmas Card Using Non-Traditional Colours--Shannah's Turn

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my November post for Sundays with Crissy!!

For this month we would like to see "Christmas Cards Using Non-Traditional Colours!"
That means none of the usual red and green that is everywhere this time of year ;)  We want you to think outside the (Christmas) box and show us what you come up with!

I've chosen Crissy's adorable new image "Sharing the Warmth", available from Whimsy Stamps for my card. Aren't they so cute snuggling together for warmth? I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of mice (we grow wheat here in country South Australia, so the grain brings mice plagues - horrid little blighters! But there is no way these cute little snuggle bugs could be the same things! Crissy manages to make EVERYTHING cute!! ;)

My Mum challenged me to go 'purple' (her favourite colour), and I teamed it with 'aqua' (my favourite colour) and this is what I ended up with...

And a close-up of Crissy's image...

I'd love you to pop over to my blog Embellished ExpresShan's for a visit and see more details about my card!

Now it's your turn to show us your 'CHRISTMAS CARD IN NON-TRADITIONAL COLOURS'!! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

You can link up you project on Sarah's post by clicking HERE. Just find the Blue Linky button and add your project! (She has all the instructions!)

Hope you all have a fabulous week and have fun with those Christmas cards!

Hugs, Shannah xox
