Christmas in Blue, Lavender and Grey

Some non-traditional colours for this card - but I feel they work well together.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
CHNC - Colour It
Creative Colors - 3 colours + sentiment
Catch The Bug - Recipe (Image + Die-cut + Bling)
Clear It Out Challenge - Anything Goes

I have used a non-Christmas paper from Rosie's Studio for the background.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers C2, BV04, B02.  I also added some bling to the centres of most of the snowflakes.  The sentiment and snowflake border are die-cuts from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I also die-cut a bell border from purple cardstock and silver glitter cardstock using a die from Memory Box.  I then added some glitter to the bells.

Oops - nearly forgot to include the colour palette for Creative Colors!  Here it is:

Aren't they just the best colours for a non-traditional christmas card!
