Non-Traditional Christmas-Let's Get Hopping Round 47

Hey Y'all!

It's great to be back with the Let's Get Hopping crew for another fun hop! This month, we made projects around the theme "Non-Traditional Christmas." If you are already hopping along, you arrived from the fabulous Megan Teare, or you may be starting with me. Either way, Welcome!
This was a challenge for me! When I saw the theme, my mind immediately went to a suite that I fell in love with, surprisingly, because if anyone is a traditional girl, it's me! And when I think of "traditional" Christmas, I think of color-red, green, plaid.  The Whimsy and Wonder Suite is anything but traditional, but it is so beautiful.

I love the soft colors in the suite's DSP, and even though I didn't use it on my card, I used it as inspiration for my color scheme, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, and silver embossing. 

The ribbon was pulled apart to create the individual strands and tied in a knot, and added some of the Subtle Shimmer Sequins.  I wanted to keep the card clean and simple. I added one of the small trees to the inside of my card. 
Now it's time to hop over to my beautiful friend from "Down Under," Shelley Wadge.
