Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

Here's another card that I've made for several challenges. Above all, this has been a challenge for me to use other colors than the traditional ones for a Christmas card. I wanted to give it a try (or maybe even succeed? :) ), because I love the green-red-gold combination in my Christmas tree and decorations and couldn't imagine myself going a different way... Otherwise I think this pink-brown combination is just gorgeous... Anyway, I would love to hear what you have to say about my attempt at using this colour scheme (hopefully I will get enough courage to be more open-minded about this). :) Also, I wanted to say that the ornaments you can see in the tree are actually hot pink, but because of the flash-light they have taken different hues in the picture. Thank you very much for looking!



The challenges I am submitting this card to are:

Our Creative Corner - Yummy Color Combo (light pink, hot pink, brown, white)
Allsorts - Snowflakes in September
365 Card - DIY Paper
Pile It On - Punches
Christmas Stampin' - Non-Traditional Colors
The Color Throwdown - Color Throwdown

How neat! Your ornaments actually look like lights to me. As soon as I saw this photo, I thought you found a way to light up your card! I couldn't wait to figure out how! LOL. I guess I'll have to start using my flash :)

I think you did a wonderful job incorporating non-traditional colors to you card. Using non-traditional for Christmas cards gives cards a modern contemporary flair. . .which I think is beautiful!!! Wow, I love your X-mas tree. . .it just glows. Beautiful! Thank you for playing along with us this week! Hope to see you playing along again.
