Grey and Yellow Christmas:

Yuck!  I am absolutely thrilled yesterday is over.  It was just one of those days. Yuck, yuck, yuck!  I am so yuck-i-fied, that I am taking today off from work.  I haven't just "taken a day off from work" ever.  EVER.  Feels kind of liberating :)

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is grey and yellow.

Of course I took this challenge to make another Christmas card.  I am actually quite happy how the colours worked with Christmas.  Very nontraditional colours, but those are my favorite.

Card Ingredients:  The Graphics Fairy digi, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, American Crafts jute, Christmas tree ornament, Recollections gems, cheese cloth.  Tools:  sewing machine, Circle Nestie.


I made this card for the following challenges:  Created With Love - Christmas, no red/green, Quirky Crafts - layers and snow, Digi Haven - freebie, Scrap It Girl - trees, Unscripted Sketches  - sketch:
