Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #104 - Use the the colours Slate, Kraft and White or Cream on your Christmas card.

It is my turn to challenge our wonderful cardmakers on Merry Monday this week. I have gone for non-traditional colours, but perhaps not so non-traditional for our Scandinavian friends. I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with.



 For my card I have used, Basic linen textured Bazzill for the base card, Kraft from PTI, spots from MME, and a metallic blue/grey, embossed white and a  PTI kraft for the banners. The Lil'Inker stitched square is Neenah white, the trees are Dies and Stamps from PTI. The card is finished with silver ribbon, rhinestones and enamel dots.



 See what the design team have created to inspire you by going to the challenge site (link above) or by clicking on the links below.

Fabulous card, Karen and a great challenge! Love your trio of trees and the various shades of grey you used. Hope you're staying dry and warm - it's gonna be a miserable Easter weekend weather-wise! Good news is that it's great crafting weather :)

Your card is just lovely Karen! I would never have thought to use these colors for a tree, but it works beautifully!!
