Mambo Eggplant Christmas

I am so into the non-traditional colors for Christmas Cards. This one is so much prettier in real life, my camera needs to be tuned or something? Anyway this card is made with Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo--so pretty. The image is colored with my watercolor pencils, haven't used those in a long time!

This is my first time playing along with the Stampin 411 challenge. I always forget about it. I really could not resist this one the layout just screamed this set to me. There are so many challenges and so little time. I am gonna try to make this a regular, I don't have a regular Saturday sketch. Come on and check it out with me. You can find the sketch below my card or follow the link above.

Here is the sketch...

All supplies Stampin Up!

Stamps: Holy Triptych, Scenic Season, Serene Snowflake
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Mellon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant
Other: watercolor pencils, blender pen, silver marker,

This is also a contribution to this upcoming week's Challenge on Latenightstampers, you will have to check back later tonight to hear what it is, and of course to see this week's Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.

Till then, have fun!
