Stampin' Up! Tree Trimmings and I make a non-traditional Christmas Card.

I know I'm not the only person who isn't a big fan of red and green Christmas cards (not that you can tell from my previous card :) ), So, this card isn't a big surprise for me, but I love the colour combo, and can see myself using it again...
This is a Confetti White card base, which has been layered with a piece of Wisteria Wonder which I have run through the Big Shot with a non Stampin' Up! Embossing folder (it's hard to see in this picture, but it's all flourish-y in real life) I have then layered some Sahara Sand card on top, with a piece of Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon. The main image panel is again Confetti White, which I have stamped the ornaments on from Tree Trimmings in Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand, the strings are stamped in Early Espresso and have been lined up using my Stamp-a-majig. The sentiment is from the retired hostess set, The best is yet to be. I have then popped some rhinestones on the corner of the Wisteria Wonder piece and rounded the corners.
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the sketch from Stampin' Royalty, which while my proportions are off, this is the sketch I tried to stick to...  The second challenge is the Wee Memories theme challenge of Holidays, and lastly the Moxie Fab World Texture challenge. 
Thanks for popping in!
Happy Stamping.
