Different Colours for Christmas

Hi everyone,
I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
I managed to sneak in some crafting time and so enjoyed colouring up this cute image 
from Chrishanthi by ppinkydolls called I Love Christmas that can be found here.

I wanted to use up some very old Basic Grey plaid dp that I'd been hoarding.
 (I have a thing for plaid paper) so that is how I came up with the colours
...a little different but I know it will match some home decor of friends on my list.  

I pulled out some olive coloured vellum, cut some snowflakes and heat embossed
 an old circle sentiment from StampinUp with gold embossing powder before cutting it out.
Corrugated paper was also from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Bearly-Mine Challenges - November Christmas Cards 
Crafty Calendar Challenge - November It's All About Christmas

I'm so glad blogger is cooperating today...not so much last night though.

Thanks for stopping by today and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
