Colorful Seasons Greetings

I have a card to share today that uses rather non-traditional images and colors for a holiday card.
The stamps are Waltzingmouse - Funky Flowers and Simple Sprig. Sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet.   The design and colors used came from several challenges.

It's a one layer card for the WMS Forum September Christmas card Challenge (which I'm a little late for!)
The colors chosen are for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge 
 The design is the Freshly Made Sketch 
 So - very non-traditional -  but I like it!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - bloom from Funky Flowers, leaf stem from Simple Sprig, Seasons Greeting from Nutcracker Sweet.
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Memento - Danube Blue, Bahama Blue, Gray Flannel, London Fog, Archival Jet Black

Great design, Julia. I really like the subtle grey leaves - I never think to use grey!

Oh this is gorgeous!! I love the combination of challenges, the blue flowers and soft grey leaves. A great Christmas card!! Thanks so much for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics!

BTW - I'm rather partial to blue flowers - blue poppies - so pretty!!
