Non-traditional Colours for Christmas ~

Hello again,
Here I am back with my second post for the day
...this time for the new challenge starting at

where our lovely host Christine has chosen the fun theme "Non-Traditional Colours"
So no greens or reds on those Christmas creations this week.

I've coloured a lovely image from our sponsor
Crafts and Me.  This beauty is called "Nutcracker"
Having a few ballerinas in the family I know this will be a popular creation.

Coloured with Copics
DP and tag - Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Paper pad
Spellbinder Layered Poinsettia Die
Marianne die LR0136
Elizabeth Craft designs Merry Christmas stand Up Helper die, cut in half
and added to each corner
Shape created using MS Cherish Punch 

I would like to enter the Crafts and Me Challenge ~Faces 
Crafting by Designs Challenge - It's Time to Get Ready for Christmas

Thanks for stopping by and do pop by the WW blog and see the
wonderful inspiration from my team's never to early to start on those
Christmas cards.
