Non-Traditional Christmas

The assignment was an ATC mingle. I little less stress, because you don't have to make a whole whack of ATC's, just one. Send it to the person below you on the list, and the bottom sends to the top! They are so much fun to do. A group I belong to has been doing them throughout the fall, with themes from Back to School, to Holiday Traditions. Our assignment this month was Non-Traditional Christmas. This could include techniques, colors, anything you would not normally associate with a traditional Christmas ATC. I saw a card over at SplitCoastStampers that used non-traditional colors, and it gave me the inspiration for my ATC, which was made for my buddy, Michelle..I like it so much, I may do something similar for my Christmas Cards next year!
I used DCWV Textured Cardstock, Doodlebug Bazzill, and SU! Green Galore Cardstock. Inks were SU! Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, and Pink Passion. I used the Cutter Kit's distressing tool (SU!) for the edges. Stamps are Snow Flurries from SU's Holiday Mini, and SU's Warm Words. I topped it off with some chalk on the edges, some glitter glue, and a snowflake sequin!
