House Mouse DT - Christmas Card - non traditional colours.

This week at House Mouse it is the choice of the lovely Lisa and she wants us to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colours. I think of red and green as being the traditional colours so I went for blue  - but  most of my cards, most years, end up blue so I suppose this is traditional for me - lol.



I'm not sure what this image is called and it is packed away at my house so I can't even look, but it is coloured in Copics and I've added Polar White flowersoft for the snow and the snowflakes which I've added randomly around the image. The paper is Kars and I've cut a frame with the curved rectangle nesties and mounted on foam dots around the image. The ribbon, die cut snowflakes and pearls are from stash.
