Christmas at Sweet Stampin - No Red or Green!


 
Morning :) 
 
Back again today with a mid-month inspiration card for our challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin  where this time our theme is 'No Red or Green'.  We are sponsored by Flat Friends who are offering the winner 4 cute digis of their choice.
 
Now, not using red or green was harder than I thought it would be........  I used one of my fave LOTV images and followed a sketch I found from Starry Nights.  I loved using this sketch so much I think I will make a lot of my christmas cards using this layout, as it was really quick and simple.
 
I dug out some much neglected mirri board and used up scraps of Anna Griffin and MME papers.   The dies are a mix of Cheery Lynn, Memory box and spellbinders, and I added some gold card candi, wooden snowflake and a starry brad to finish.  
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I will be popping along later

Beautifully effective with your die-cutting of the gold Mirri - the browns are just delicious & I love the way you've added gold pearls to the ornaments.
Your colouring of her clothing is lovely for I can really see the folds in her cloak.
With Easter Greetings from me
