Retro Christmas Scramble

I made a card for the Hero Arts Flickr Group 90 minute scramble this morning. The challenge was to make a card with non traditional colours. I based my card on the current Retro Sketch #35 and used Basic Grey's papers. I decided to use blues/greens and a slight hint of red. I used the MFT Dienamics Fishtail STAX die for the banner. This was won for submitting a card drive for Maddy by Jana Millen (I received the prizes two days ago). Thanks Jana! I made the card in under 60 minutes, a personal best! I'm also submitting this card to the Basic Grey - Anything Goes challenge and CAS-ual Fridays' Kraft On Challenge. Thanks for dropping by!
