Non-Traditional Holiday Colors

Just a quick post to share a card I made for the new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, to make a holiday card with non-traditional festive colors.


I used icy blue, pink, and brown. The stamps are from two retired Flourishes stamp sets, All that Glitters and O Christmas Tree.

I'd love to stay and chat a bit, but I developed a splitting headache a few minutes ago and all I can think of now is going to lie down. I'm so sorry!

Thanks for dropping in,
Emily

Hope your headache didn't last too long. I like to put a damp facecloth in a ziptop baggie and warm it up in the microwave, zip it up and place it over where ever the pain is. (Great for sinus headaches) If it's too hot, be sure and put a thin facecloth between the heat pack and your skin...you really don't need a burn as well as the headache!
I just love your pretty card. The branches hanging down with the dainty little ornament and the snow flakes in the background...love it, love it, love it!
Thank you for sharing and take care of yourself! {{{Hugs}}}

Boo, hiss on the headache. I hope it's long gone!

Oh my goodness! I love this so much. Elegant, elegant, elegant. The font on that sentiment is so pretty, too.

I am sorry you had a headache the day you posted this. I've had one nearly every day, as we approach Christmas. Stress is just awful, isn't it?
