Paper Pretties Challenge #180: Non-traditional Christmas

Stamps:  Paper Pretties " O Christmas Tree".  Cardstock:  Paper Studio 'Happy Hootin Holidays', Papertrey white.  Ink:  Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi.  Accessories:  Martha Stewart scallop border, Nestabilities rectangles.

When it comes to Christmas, I am a traditional kind of girl -- it's red and green all the way!  Paper Pretties Weekly Challenge #180 was a real challenge because I had to shift gears and go with the non-traditional colors.  And you know what?  It was fun! 

OK, red and green still made their appearance, but at least they didn't dominate the show!

I am enjoying revisiting old friends and challenges; this sketch is courtesy of Midnight Madness sketch challenge #130.  I went with the CAS version, rotated on  its side.  Hello, MMSC friends!
