Christmas Card Club " Non Traditional Colours"

Good morning all.
 I'm hoping it's good for me too after the hen party last night...but I'll probably still be in bed when this goes live!!

It's our final challenge at our little Christmas Card club and Margaret has set us the theme of "Non Traditional Colours".

Made in the same vein as my two winter wonderland cards earlier in the week, this is my final  special card for this year....and if something could go wrong, smudge or go askew it did!!
Sleigh scene is half a Crafty Impressions stamp, heat embossed with white detail EP. Card is then inked with various distress inks. Purple trees are a Penny black magazine freebie stamped in dusty concord DI. House and trees die is from Memory Box and I've cut it up to fit the Lawn Fawn stitched border die. Sentiment from Clearly Besotted, snowman from Crafty Impressions and snowflake was another magazine freebie. Gem from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Stamping Sensations - winter wonderland
Crafts 4 Eternity - Christmas
Art Impressions Stamps - feeling frosty
Artist Trading Post - let's celebrate
Milk Coffee - Christmas non traditional colours
ABC Christmas - for a family member (for my sister)
Craft a Scene - winter scene
