Unusual Christmas

The theme this week at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge is a little unusual ~ "Unusual Christmas". I'm sure it can be interpretted in lots of different ways. I made a Christmas card using non-traditional colours (orange and yellow, with a touch of pink) and I also used a non-Christmas image. The image is Umbrella - Closed from our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique. I cut off the handles and turned the image into a Christmas tree, then resized and used two images. Hopefully that's unusual enough to fit the challenge!

I also used: Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe), Bella gems, Glitz Design alpha stickers

I'm submitting my card at:
# The Stamping Boutique ~ Holiday
# Creative Craft ~ Free for all
# Craft Your Days Away ~ Embellishment bingo ~ gems, ribbon, buttons
