Happy Holidays

Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using a couple of challenges. First I used the challenge this week on the The Paper Player's Blog, which is a fun color challenge:

and I used the sketch challenge this week on the Freshly Made Sketches

The colors this week are perfect for a Fall card but this set has been calling my name, so I decided to try my hand at making them work for a Christmas card.
Not your traditional colors for a Holiday card but I liked the end result.

I used the Stampin Up "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set. I used my aqua painter and ink pads to color the sweet little image.
The DSP comes from the Orchard Harvest paper pack.
The sentiment is from the retired "Four the Holidays" set.
Thanks for stopping by today and
