Bearlymine Designs Challenge Twentyfive - "Untraditional Christmas"

Good Morning Everyone, well yet another fortnight has flown by and weve now reached our Twentyfifth Challenge at Bearlymine Designs and this one we want to see "Untraditional Colours" on your card. The news on poor Donna is still uncertain, but I do want to wish her good luck that things will soon return to normal for her, as Im sure she really must be very frustrated with things. Anyway back to this fortnights Challenge and this time we are being sponsered by the following companies:-

Theres some really fabulous prizes there and Im sure you will want a chance of winning one of them. And here is my card for this Challenge.
The Design Team was lucky to be able to choose a image for this Challenge and I chose this "Gingerbread Bo" from Teddybo for my card, Ive coloured him with copics and tria pens then cut him out with Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 then used the same die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Flourishes circle stamps and Ive treated it in the same way as the mounted image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and Ive cut it with the Grand Nestabilitie Die Labels No.1 and then cut a mount out of blue card and for my papers I have used Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Christmas Wishes" digi paper set, the first paper has lots of gingerbread men (I thought it was ideal for this image) and I cut this to fit like the first mount. The second and third papers have been cut into 5" squares and then Ive used my Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake border and corner punches on them, then placed them on top of the first paper in an of set manner, the patterns on both were firstly a snowflake and the second was a sentiment one. Then around the middle I have wrapped a gingerbread ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have put three little pom poms on his gingerbread suit just for a bit of texture.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will now visit the Bearlymine Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Untraditional Christmas" Challenge.

Love the effect the Grand Nestie gives your card and love the blue Xmas paper... I can never find stuff like that. Such a great card, I find them hard to give away and want to treasure them for a while first.
Hugs and Merry Christmas
