Non traditional christmas colours at the new Christmas Fun challenge

Good morning all

It's another two card day
(not a AnotherTequila Sunrise - sorry I'm a biggg fan of The Eagles sometimes the words of songs just pop into my head - you really should live in here its a very musical place lol)

I digress- what I really want to say is
 I'm so excited to be here with my first DT card for a brand new
Christmas challenge Blog

Christmas Fun Challenge Blog

Christmas Fun is a fortnightly challenge that started on 1st January this year
 and this week its the turn of team B

The theme for the challenge is 

Non Traditional Christmas Colours

I found this fab image in the JustInklined digi shop 
its called Three Kings and is available here
and thought it would make a perfect card for this challenge
I  love this image its also perfect to celebrate Epiphany - which was just last week 
 when the wise men visited the infant Jesus 

I enjoyed colouring this in some totally different colours - mostly colours I don't often use.  Then i simply surrounded the image with gold stickles (it looks better IRL!)

So come on - join me in getting ready or next christmas - while you can still remember the pain of last Christmas when you hadn't made enough cards lol

This is what I did....

Image - the wise men from justinklined
coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Ribbon - Vintage seam binding in teal from crafty ribbons
Gem embellie and papers - Michaels recollections
Kraft - MFT
Glitter - gold stickles
Sentiment - produced in word

Hope we see your gorgeous Christmas creations this week  I'll be back later this morning with my GDT card for Crafty Little Fairies - don't forget to come back to see what I've got cooking!!
