I'm Dreaming of an Aqua Christmas!

Although I have made plenty of Christmas cards this year I couldn't resist making yet another one :) After my week away in England it feels great to get back into my craft room and get coloring again.
There are lots of Christmas challenges around at the moment but the photo inspiration one at Crafty Cardmakers with the beautiful Aqua tree really caught my eye and that's where I started with this card.

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Crafty Cardmakers - Photo Inspiration (an aqua Christmas tree)(15 challenges max)
Crafty Ribbons - Use at Least 2 Ribbons
Critter Sketch - Christmas
Lexis - Christmas
Cupcake Craftroom - Christmas (2 entries only)

Natalie and Amy - Christmas/Winter
Addicted to Stamps - Christmas Time
Dream Valley - Non Traditional Christmas (3 entries only)
Sentimental Sunday - Non Traditional Christmas Colors
Incy Wincy - Non Traditional Christmas Colors
Bildmalarna - Bingo! (I chose Pearls, Flowers and White)
Desert Island Crafters - Pick 3 (I chose Gems, Ribbon and Glitter)
Amusing Challenges - Die Cut (2 entries only no digi)

Card Recipe:
Image - Mimosa's Teddy Bear
Medium - Copic Markers

Paper - Blossom Song by DCWV
Die Cuts - Oval and Beaded Oval by Spellbinders
Rhinestone Accent - The Paper Studio
Flowers - Prima and Recollections

So there you are, a non traditional color scheme and not even a Christmas stamp but a Christmas card non the less.
I hope you liked it and be sure to keep coming back as I have a card for the new releases at Digital Delights tomorrow and then a guest spot on Friday at Color Me Creative Classroom with even more at the weekend :)
