Sparkles Christmas: Non-Traditional Colors

Hi, everyone! It's the first of a new month... which means it's time for a new Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

This month's theme is Non-Traditional Colors, and was chosen by fellow DTer Helen. What a fun idea for a holiday card challenge! Thanks, Helen!

I thought broken china, worn lipstick.... and some purple glitter might make for an interesting combination.  Of course, I'm enjoying any and all opportunities to play with Tim's new Oxides. And, I was pretty happy at my successful alignment of those embossed blue and glittery purple snowflakes.  :)

Hope you'll stop by Sparkles Christmas and check out the gals' non-traditional color combos. Our DT really outdid themselves on this one.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
