Non-traditional colour Christmas card

I thought I would make a brown Christmas card for a change. Papers were freebies from a magazine, so this is another card for my challenge today for the Christmas card gang. The Inkadinkado reindeer stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail white powder. The ribbon, flowers and brad are from stash.

Colours are for Pals paper arts 118:

and for Tanda teaser 183: sepia tones.

This is also for:

Pixie cottage 94: get started - make a Christmas card
Mami doodles 37: Christmas
St Luke's November: Christmas is coming
Ribbon girl: jingle all the way to Christmas
Sundays with Crissy 23: Christmas card using non-traditional colours
Card and scrap 19: Christmas card with flowers, tag and text
Just add ink 92: just add a tag or bookmark
Fun with shapes and more 95: anamalistic Christmas
Create me pink 3: flower challenge
Stamps R us: masculine theme
Stamp n doodle: emboss it
Jellypark friends: non-traditional Christmas colours
The craft garden November: Christmas but no red or green
Glitter fairies 4: non-traditional Christmas - no red, green, gold
Ribbon carousel 27: anything goes
2 sisters 64: ribbon
Crimbo crackers 1: anything goes
Corrosive136: with a flourish
Papercraft star 69: a flourish
Divas by design 14: use metal (brads)
Meljen 83: use brads
ABC Christmas: V is for vintage Christmas
Addicted to stamps 17: make it shabby, shabby chic or vintage
Freshly brewed 71: anything goes
Papertake: anything goes (plus a bit of bling)
