7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Nontraditional Christmas Colors

Happy Wednesday!

This week at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge , our challenge is to use Non-Traditional Christmas Colors. For my nontraditional colors, I opted for purple and pink.




You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund...



 The challenge at Make It Colourful challenged us to color to show light from a lantern or candlelight.


 I used the Holiday Lamppost from the Tim Holtz Collection and used glitter for the light.


I cut grunge paper with the Festive Greenery and the flower from Tattered Florals, both from Tim Holtz. I added some distress paint and distress inks for color and worked with the paper until I had the curls and score lines I wanted. 

I am entering this in the following challenges: 



Thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely messages. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
