Totally Gorjuss # 57 - Non Traditional Christmas (DT)

Wow, you guys rocked it with your traditional Christmas colours for last week's TOTALLY GORJUSS challenge - so many wonderful entries.  Do check the main blog to see who was selected as the lucky winner of the yummy prizes.

So, as you were all so good with the red, green and gold, this week's challenge is to think different - we'd like to see NON traditional Christmas colours this time!

We have a great sponsor on board in the shape of Crafters Companion and don't forget there is an extra surprise at the moment by way of a bonus Magnolia stamp for the selected winner.

Here is my card:

I adore this Sugar Nellie snowman and have coloured him/her with ProMarkers.  Papers are from Papermania, the sentiment is Personal Impressions by Paula Pascual and the mirror shine gems are from stash. Martha Stewart border punch to finish off.

As there is only FIVE WEEKS to Christmas (aaaaaaaaaaargh, better start some shopping soon) I know you will be busy with your cards so why not share them with us and enter the challenge.  See you there!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
