MERRY MONDAY #131 - Non-Traditional Colors

The Snowhaven Cardmaking Workshop on the Go stamp set has some really fun images – and this is one of my favorite sentiments.  I love paper piecing, and this sentiment worked very well with the technique.  

The layout of the card is the same as in the workshop, but that is where the similarities end.  I was inspired by the Merry Monday challenge to use “non-traditional colors” on a Christmas card.  Now I realize that I used the traditional red and green, but I started with the navy blue patterned paper, which actually came from the “Superhero” paper pack.  What could be further from Christmas?!  

I loved the mix of the navy with the red and green, so I am entering this card in the Merry Monday Challenge.

Here is a list of all the materials I used for this card.  All items are from CTMH.
Snowhaven Cardmaking WOTG stamp set G1085
Colonial White and Outdoor Denim cardstock
Superhero Background paper (retired)
Outdoor Denim, Cranberry and Topiary
Topiary Striped Washi Tape 2002
Ruby Chevron Washi Tape Z1933
Red Enamel Hearts Z2009
3-D Foam Tape Z1151
