Non-Traditional Christmas

After a few weeks of making a horde of red & green cards,
I was ecstatic to find a new challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow.

Create a vintage, shabby or primitive card using non-traditional colors.
Yes, please!

Here's what I came up with:

The stamp is from Stampendous and has a little bit of everything I love in it, from Santa with his toys and tree to the vintage postage stamp.  It's very versatile and I have been using it a lot!

Made good use of some new Spellbinders dies (labels 8) and re-purposed some ribbon scraps.

The ink is from Ranger -Tim Holtz Distress Ink : Rusty Hinge.
Patterned paper is DCWV : Cafe Mediterranean.

Thanks for taking a look and go check out Sugar Creek Hollow to join in the challenge!
