MSC - Non Traditional Christmas card

It is the last time for me to be a host at the Mod Squad Challenge.  I am stepping down to make room for other talented crafters to wow you with their challenges.  So I am going to just say fare well with a simple Christmas Challenge for you.
Just make a Christmas card with colors that you would not see usually on a Christmas card.  No Red, Green, Gold or Silver.
My example for you

On this card I used these supplies:
Power Poppy stamp, Poinsettia
Dies:  Frantic Stamper Elementals #16 Stitched Rectangle Frame
Card stock:  Gina K, Kraft and Berries and Vines, pattern paper.
Sentiment Die: Spellbinder Classic Frames and word window, and oval.
Copic markers:
BG000, BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78, BG96
R81, R83, R85
Silver gel pen, Wink of Stella
Sequins from my stash
 I completed the inside with a strip of design paper and Kraft, and a large blue sequin.
Sure hope that you will have time to join us in the challenge this week.  Let's make my last one a huge success.
Thanks for you comments and Have a Joyous Holiday!

12 Days of Christmas Challenge

Power Poppy and the Bloom Brigade have a fantastic challenge for us this month.  Every day they bring a new craft to the blog.  Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge.
If you follow my blog, I have been busy today with two posts.  Yes, I could not sleep last night, so what better thing to do than a challenge.  I decided to so a gift bag as I will be needing many this year.  Daught is sending gifts here to Florida, as they will be joining us here for the holidays. I, of course offered to warp every last one of them.  (What was I thinking?)

Sorry, I digress.  Here is the gift bag that I made and decorated.
I was easy to do after watching how to make a bag from gift wrap. 
I have a shiny gift wrap that is gold and has black and green plaid pattern in it. I added the green gemstones to the top and the Stitched Tunnel tag from Memory box.  The tag is stamped and colored using the new stamp set from Power Poppy called Under Glass.  The bow also works as a closing for this bag.  Fun, Fun Fun!

OK, I am done for today, but I think that I will be back for another day with this challenge.
Thanks fo stopping by, I love your comments.

Double D Challenge - it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas

All in Red or White with an optional pop of green, that is the idea behind this gorgeous mood board.  See for yourself.

This board along with all of the teams fun designs have motivated me to get out card stock and play along.  I loved that hearts in the top left corner and that was what inspired my card.

 I used a die that looked close to the hearts on the mood board.  It is from Simon Says Stamps and has a matching die.  It is called Roses for You.  I was also very anxious to use a new die that I got recently from Penny Black, Antique Frame.   I cut it three times and used foam tape between layers.  Then I wanted a pop of green so I searched out my IO Fern dies and added them to the front. For the hearts, I colored the bottom half of the heart with my red marker and added small dots with my white gell pen. A few snowflake sequins from my stash and it was done. 

I decided not to all a sentiment on the front.  It may end up a Valentine card.  Never know! (wink)
I will be entering this one in the Double D Challenge. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today and leaving a comment.  I much appreciate it especially on this card.  You see I have brought my craft supplies with me to Florida and I can't find a thing!  It's a miracle that I got this one done, at 2 a.m.
