12 Months of Christmas Link Up

A day late and a dollar short and I am irritated with blogger as I had this post done and it suddenly just disappeared. Ugh! I so wanted to move onto other things rather than typing this all again.
At any rate, I forgot to post this yesterday. The 12 Month's of Christmas Link Up challenge #17 went live yesterday. Our theme this month is non-traditional Christmas colors.

Here is a refresher of the basics.
  • Anyone can link up as many Christmas and/or December holiday themed cards (including Happy New Year's cards) throughout the month with an ANYTHING GOES theme.
  • Every person who has linked up a MINIMUM of two (2) cards will be eligible to receive a specially designed Christmas themed digital paper.
  • Each month there will be an OPTIONAL theme to follow.  Anyone who submits a card adhering to the monthly theme, will have the chance to win a prize from that month's guest sponsor.
  • Every holiday card you submit to the link up, earns you one chance to win a special digital Christmas kit that will be offered up after the year is complete.
This month's sponsorship is actually a combination of The Stamping Boutiqueand Glitterbabe Stamps (selling out of The Stamping Boutique Store). 

And out designer Paper sponsor is Decosse's Dynamite Doodles:

My card for the challenge uses an image from The Stamping Boutique called The Nativity colored with Copic markers.

I made this card 6x6 which is not my usual size card. The base is white card stock with a black card stock background. I used one of the paper patterned set available this month from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

I used several of the colors and die cut the squares with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Square Stax. The sentiment is from a retired Gina K stamp set, stamped on vellum and die cut from MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. I die cut two buttons from MFT Button Quartet and embellished with twine to hide the adhesive holding the sentiment down. The star and the Baby Jesus are popped up from the card.
I hope you will join us this month at the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up, show us your non-traditional colors (or any Christmas card) and get a start on those holiday cards this year.
I am entering these challenges:
Okay blogger don't fail me again please! Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to an awesome start.

I really like the bold colour blocked background. The nativity image is beautifully coloured. Nicely done. Thanks so much for playing along with our Pick a Previous theme at 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.
