Unique Christmas - Non Traditional Colors


Welcome to my portion of the week end fun celebrating Operation Write Home's birthday.

Your challenge (should you decide to accept it) is to make a unique Christmas card which means - to use non traditional colors.

Since we are Operation Write Home - I decided to make a Red, White and Blue Christmas card. I know that this image will bring a smile to someone's face when they receive this card from a loved one serving overseas.

So please make a holiday card using non traditional colors - how about some orange, how about some purple, how about some hot pink - you know you can do it. I am excited to see your cards - please link them below.
