Boy, another Christmas card...

I tried a color combo challenge on Paper Wings and this was the result! What do you think?
Paper: DCWV cardstock stack - brown & robin's egg blue, scrap of cream
Stamp: Joy of Christmas
Ink: Turquoise Gem VersaMagic, Moonlight White Brilliance
Misc: Stickles, Hillary Embellishment Jar, silver brad
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder, Wizard diecut machine by Spellbinders
This card really sparkles in real life. There's even some Stickles in the design areas of the JOY. You can sort of see them in the picture. I'm really into non-traditional colors for Christmas and most of the cards I have posted show this.

This card is also part of an Angel Blogger Challenge. We had to use either Joy of Christmas or Holly Swirls (which I don't have). To see more cards with these to sets just visit the following blogs:
Sara
Laurie U.
KellyRae - 1 & 2
Tonya
Diane - 1 & 2
Laurie W.
Bridgett
Melisa
As more angels join the challenge I'll get them added.

Love the sparkle. I'm a non-traditional Christmas color gal myself (hence my tree decorated with orange, lime green, purple, red, and gold).
