Non-traditional colours

For the last challenge for this year, Granmargaret asked the Christmas Card Club to use non-traditional colours. I've used offcuts of DCWV papers and a large snowflake cut on my Scan n Cut, with another underneath, held with the brad, with a strip of turquoise mirror card embossed with the star of wonder embossing folder. The snowmen are lovely and shiny irl, but they don't show to full advantage in the photo.

This is also for:
