Some non-traditional colours for Christmas

I made this card this afternoon, using Stampin' Up snowflake stamps, Versamark and white embossing powder, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, and a Papertrey Ink sentiment (plus some bling).
 My brother commented that he doesn't like non-traditional colours (in other words, every Christmas card should be red and green), but my niece (Miss 6) decided I should try something different - and she chose Picked Raspberry and Dusty Concord - talk about non-traditional!!

I'll be submitting this card to CASual Fridays "Winter Blues" , to Less is More Glamour and Glitz, and to Addicted to CAS Challenge- SNOW

PS have you been checking out the Christmas-travaganza over at A Blog Named Hero??!?!?!?! A whole heap of Christmassy inspirational goodness from November 22nd until Christmas Eve!  Stay tuned for my guest spot closer to Christmas! Yay!!
