Jingle Bells

The challenge this week at For Fun Challenges is a colour challenge - use any of the following three colours on your card: pink, purple, green, yellow or blue. I've managed to use all 5 colours on this non-traditional Christmas card.

Meljen's Designs is our sponsor this week and I have had this jingle bell from them for a little while now. I have always loved this image and wanted to play with it so I started to look for how I could make a non-traditional Christmas card and found this paper in my stash. It's not clear in this photo but there are very tiny snowflakes in the smaller dots that match the big one below.

The sketch comes from Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge and between the image, colours and layout, it was a very fun card to create this week. Hope you enjoy it!
