Non Traditional Colors

I went to the SU Holiday Catalog  for inspiration for some non traditional colors for Christmas cards. Right on the front was this color combo. This is similar to the the card stock they used but I don't remember what the card stock color was called. It is my last piece.  Next is a layer of vellum with some glitter flecks. The green is Lemon Lime Twist. The tree and sentiment are Festival of Trees.  I stamped it in Pool Party and sponged some Lemon Lime Twist around the edges. Then colored in the dots and lines with silver and gold glitter pens, and added a punched silver glitter star on top. 3 silver stars around the card add more glitter.
Inside, I added more silver glitter stars.
Sorry for the dark photos, it is a dreary cold rainy day here. I couldn't lighten them up any more without getting washed out.
I used the sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches
Also playing along with The Paper Players tic-tac-toe inspiration. I used the first vertical row, tree, Christmas, silver/gold.
