'Uniquely' Colored Christmas Blessing

Today's challenge letter is 'U' in Beccy's Place 30 days of Christmas Cards.  

For my entry I selected Stampendous, 'Candy Canes'.

While I know my Copic shades pretty good, I don't know their color naming.  I started by searching to see if there was a Copic name that started with a 'U'.  I found that E29 is Burnt Umber,  I've used that for the center of the greenery.  

I also decided to use a Salmon colored bow for non traditional Christmas colors, making it 'uniquely' colored. 

The pretty eyelet edge on the oval shape was done using Gina Marie's Petite Looped Lace Oval die.  The card base is a standard A2, covered with the coordinating olive patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment 'Christmas Blessings' at the bottom.  Then I simply secured the image to the front of the card to complete the design.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
