A Non Traditional Christmas

Good morning! 
Hope your well, the winter is well and truly setting in - I can't believe how cold it is and how many colds this family have had already… We have all been struck… Mr B is calling it 'man flu - but hey ho!

Anyway I had some amazing news the other day, I have been asked to be a Guest Designer over at Treasured Times! I couldn't believe it when I was asked and of course I accepted!! So my spot is for December but I just fell in love with this image and had to colour her up for the latest challenge over there of 

Not Traditional Christmas Colours

Now I don't think many people would think of this image as a Christmas one at all - I sure didn't, she is from the wonderful designer Christine Young - you can see some of her amazing work over at the Treasured Times Store - Please allow me to introduce you to 

I just fell in love with her when I saw her and had to get her coloured up - I then felt she just fitted with the challenge!  The image was coloured with copics;

Skin and Hair
E50, E51, E53, E21, E93

BG23, BGxx, BGxx, C1, C3

R20, R22, Y35

The papers are from my stash all mixed up so I have no idea what company. I never normally use black much at Christmas for layering as I feel its too dark but I think it worked really well on here! The Dec 25 was cut on the cameo - oh how did I ever live without her, the flowers are from my stash :)
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

4 Krafty Girls - Anything Goes
Crafty By Designs - Anything goes with a twist of Christmas 
Sassy Studio Designs - Not your Typical Christmas
ABC Christmas - Winter Wishes
Fab and Funky - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope you will pop to the Treasured Times Challenge Blog and take a look at the inspiration from the rest of the DT - some really beautiful creations! 

If you have a moment I would love to know what you think
Hope to see you again soon

Great card! I know just what you mean about Cameo - I have the smaller Portrait and wonder how I managed without for sooo long! The 25th December cut is perfect too. Thanks for joining the Crafty Girls Challenge and hope to see you again soon.
