Rockin around the Christmas Tree.....

Hello everyone - Everyone enjoying the crazy weather lately?!  Up here we are currently digging out of the snow the Midwest was so nice to send our way :-)  I am not thrilled with it all - but the dogs are in thier glory!  The only good thing, if it keeps up like this, we are definitely having a white Christmas!  Todays card is for the Play Date Cafe and Cards Magazine Blog challenges.  I love using the non traditional colors and blues and purples are my faves. (I have used both as themes in my x-mas decorating!)  For the tree - I played around with my embossing powder and used three different colors to echo the patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
