Didn't quite get it right...

The latest theme over on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge is a Christmassy one, only non-traditional.

Now, I seemed to have got the wrong end of the stick with this challenge at first and read our DT info as being 'non traditional Christmas colours', where in fact it appears its a non traditional Christmas card but no red and green.

Soooooooo...lol..discovering this, the card I'd originally made had to be ditched and a last minute one pulled together.

This was my original...pink orange and green (scrapped because green isnt allowed) using a combination of Mwah!, Mistletoe and Merry Kissmas from my range at Stampotique along with this super cute Whisker Monster with a sign character from the latest releases by Kira Nichols also available at Stampotique..







and this is the last minute substitute, again stamps all by Stampotique ( this time both by Amy Wilson Wellenstein)...All Bundled Up and Christmas Mosaic





Hope you get an opportunity to take part and be in with a chance to win $30 of Stampoitique rubber by being drawn out at random.

For all the details for this challenge and what stamps can be used this week please check it out here.

If you are wanting to purchase stamps here in the UK as opposed to the USA for that rush on Christmas bits and bobs, a large selection of Stampotique images can be found at Happy Daze.

Wow love them both. Hhem, I did the same and made a non trad card but it has red on it so it's back to the drawing board. Glad I saw your post, thanks for that. xx
