Non-traditional Christmas Tree

Christine is the host of this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Non-traditional Christmas Colours' as the theme.  This month we are sponsored by Crafts are Me who are offering £10.00 to spend in their store

For my card I have used a lovely Penny Black tree stamp and have chosen Purple and Turquoise as my colours - definitely non-traditional!  I am also entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge  'J for Jewels', the Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Penny Black 'Snowlight'
Embossing: Stampendous clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Imperial Purple
Card: Turquoise matt, white silk
Paper: Turquoise 
Other: Turqoise gems

I stamped and embossed the tree on white silk card.  This was trimmed, layered onto turquoise card and attached to the card front.  I stamped the tree trunk and star onto turquoise paper, fussy cut them and attached them to the image.  To finish, I added gems to the tree.

How pretty! Love this fab PB tree. I've always liked purple & teal in clothing combos, so I'm liking it on your non-traditionally colored tree. Very eyecatching. I also love red & pink (and red & purple too!) Well done at this challenge. TFS & Hugs
