Non-Traditional Christmas Colors

The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is Non-Traditional Christmas colors.  I have this great paper from Magnolia in purples and grays.  So I created a diagonal easel card using my French Flair Scalloped Lg stacker dies for the base and my Silver French Flair stacker dies for the matching DP panels.  Still in the mood to layer doilies, I started off with my Sophia's Heart Doily in purple; then die cut my French Pastry Doily in purple adding a light grey Angel Wing backer.  I used dimensionals between the angel wing and Sophia's Heart.  Next came this beautiful Geometric Snowflake which I also popped up. 

I had intended on adding this adorable Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams collection to the front of my card but I could not bear to cover up the snowflake.  So I added a bunch of pearl accents to the snowflake and added Tilda on the inside of the card.  Behind her I added a Mini Flourish One, I thought it mimicked the pattern in the paper quite well.  For my sentiment panel I used my Oval Scalloped Lg stackers and the matching Silver Oval stackers.  Finished size is 6" square.
