Timeless Tuesday ~ Non-Traditional Holiday!

Howdy everyone!  I'm your hostess this week.  Are you counting the days until the holidays yet?  I know I sure am.  Now, let's get started with our 199th Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

This week's challenge is to create a holiday card or project where you use non-traditional festive colors (FTTC199).  So  NO green or red on your creations this week!  It's indeed, as simple as that!  Why not try creating a holiday card using orange and bluePink and purple?  Or even simple black and white.  Let's see you get creative this week everyone!

Here is my simple holiday card this week...

Merry & Bright

I began by creating my card base using Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  Then I loaded some more ivory cardstock into my electronic die cutting machine and I cut out the large poinsettia shape using my Poinsettia & Pine SVG Cut File (also available in the Silhouette Cut File version HERE.).

I inked up my large poinsettia from the "Poinsettia & Pine" stamp collection using Memento "Summer Sky" ink and stamped it onto my cut shape.  I then stamped another poinsettia using the same ink and fussy cut just the poinsettia image out.

I took a fabulous piece of light blue cardstock from the Flourishes "Color Made Easy"~ "True Blue" cardstock collection, rounded two of my corners and embossed my design.  I stitched it onto another slightly larger piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock and added it to my card base.  I stamped my greeting using the "Merry & Bright" sentiment from the "Poinsettia & Pine" stamp collection.  And volia... a simple holiday card was born!

Don't forget... to participate in this week's release week challenge, the "Let's Hop Challenge".  It's a super fun progressive challenge and YOU could win some of the AMAZING new December release stamp sets!!!

I love this, so soft and pretty. I'm not a big fan of red and green so this is perfect for me. Will play later.
