My first Christmas card of the season

I finally made a Christmas card! I've been
 stalking all the wonderful blogs I follow
and have been seeing sooo many
pretty cards. I'm glad I did too. It
has me fired up to make more!!! I am
joining in on a couple challenges
with it. So here goes:
Merry Monday #131 (Non Traditional colors) 
 CASology cue card-Week 118: HOME

When I think of traditional Christmas colors,
I think vintage. Cream, red and green...
I tend to decorate in blues & whites.
'Home' was easy...everyone wants
to be home for Christmas.
Being filled with love and light! 
Using purples and browns...I think 
it turned out pretty dang good!

Thanks for poppin' by! Hope you 
are having a great week so far!
