Christmas in July...TUIC challenge.

This week's challenge was hosted by Monica.  Click HERE to visit her awesome blog.  The idea was to use non-traditional colors for a Christmas card.  My picture does appear a bit more yellow-ish than I thought...the colors I chose were purple, turquois, & green (plus any shade of those colors in the DSP).  I also was able to get a little bling on the card with a clear rhinestone attached to the 2 paper flowers.  The Merry Christmas was stamped with an unknown SU! stamp set...I lost the box it came in...hence its permanent spot in my unknown stamp box.  The turquois paper the "Merry Christmas" sentiment is stamped on is...from a roll of amusement coupons I found at the Dollar Tree up town.  I bought these tickets for my middle child's birthday...for the games...it has a spot on the back of the top ticket for name, phone number, etc...  Amusement tickets are becoming all the rage..Papertrey Ink has them in stamp form + many others are blazing their trail with them as well.  I just used the top ticket (blank back).  They are attached with pop dots.
