Basic Grey meets Friday Sketchers

I always take a look at what's going on over on the Basic Grey Challenge blog as I love BG papers; so I was really keen to join in this week with the theme of Colour Combo. Now I must admit that I struggled a bit with this; because although I have quite a few BG papers, they mostly don't fall into any of the three colour themes allowed. Anyhow I decided to make the best of it, and went for green + red/maroon. In this case I think it is definitely maroon ... there is also some blue in there, but would beg that you overlook that!

I also incorporated this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers #23, as I thought (hoped!) it would work with the co-ordinating designs on the double-sided paper.

So .. here we are with another Christmas card. I've brought out my trusty "That Santa" stamp (Rubber Stampede, "Santa Collage"), and used a Stampendous Perfectly Clear sentiment stamp. The paper is BasicGrey "Figgy Pudding", snowflakes are cut from glitter card with my Cuttlebug, ribbon is from Sir Stampalot, and gems are by Papermania. it's kinda different for me, so I hope you like it!
