MFT November Creative Challenge

Red and green are beautiful and traditional colors but also, a bit predictable 
this time of year. This month, the design team was challenged to think outside 
the box by applying non-traditional color schemes to our Christmas crafting. 

For my card, I went in a contemporary direction and paired gold with brown.

Snowflakes and the sentiment were gold embossed on brown card stock
and a panel was die cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24.

The panel was adhered to a brown card base with dimensional foam and 
finished off with a sprinkling of shiny gold sequins.

Stop by the MFT blog for links to other designers who took on
this month's Creative Challenge. I hope that you're inspired to use
non traditional colors on your holiday cards and projects!
