Non traditional Christmas colours

'Non traditional Christmas colours' is the theme for the Glory of Christmas challenge 50 that starts today until the end of Friday 23 January. This is my design card, using one of my all time favourite colour combinations - I just love the hot pink and black together. Please click on the challenge link to see the various of designs by the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

As most of my visitors know, I love making Christmas cards, which is why I run two Christmas challenge blogs and am on the DTs for three others. I love to support all of the Christmas challenge blogs when I can and a new one started last week. I intended to enter their first challenge, but life and time defeated me and I didn't make it. So I was determined to enter CASE-ing Christmas 2, so my card was based on this lovely one by Pat that we were asked to CASE:

The papers I've used are all snippets of DCWV that I've had for yonks, but still love and will be very disappointed when all the bits have been used (still got some in my box atm).

I cut the smaller banner using one of the Die-namics fishtail flags - I decided it wasn't wide enough for what I wanted, so I cut round the pink one without a die. I stamped the Anita poinsettia on patterned paper and coloured with copics.
