The Most Wondeful Time of the Year - 2020 Holiday Linky Party Color Dare #424 "Non-traditional Colors"

This is one of my Design Team cards for our 2020 Holiday Linky Party Challenge.  This one is for our Challenge #424 "Non-Traditional" colors.  I love all the colors in the CTMH "Serenity" paperpack but decided on using a brown neutral Buffalo plaid for my stitched frame that I had die cut for a previous project and rather than loosing it to my stash decided to use it for my pink Poinsettia.  

The poinsettia was stamped with "cotton candy" ink, a very old retired product, thin cut and adhered to top corner of the background.  Small leaves were fussy-cut from one of the other design papers, a pink berry twig stamped with cotton candy and a sentiment stamped with Toffee ink.  These were all placed on background and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  For a little Christmas bling a gold gem was added in the middle of the flower.  

Please pop over to ColorMyHeart Color Dare to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges. 

This Challenge #424 "Traditional Colors" and Challenge #423 "Non-Traditional Color" are open from December 4th through December 31st... please join us with your December projects at ColorMyHeart Color Dare.

Brown and pink makes a wonderful combo for this non-traditional card. You can create Christmas with any colours. I'm so glad for this challenge!

What a wonderful colour combination Suzanne! Love the buffalo check in that warm shade with the pink poinsettia and foliage. Love the way you've cut out your sentiment too. Hope you've had a lovely Christmas and let's all look forward to a brighter new year ahead. Vicky x
