Non-Traditional Christmas (TSC1008, CCEE1040)

This week was Peggy's turn to present the Twisted Sistah's Challenge, but she couldn't find her way to the bus, so Shirley gave us a challenge to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. Just as soon as Shirley (wannabcre8ive) presented the challenge for Peggy, Lesley posted an email she had received from Peggy in which Peggy challenged us to use plaid, paper piecing and a flower. We're a bit confused on that bus sometimes! Well, Shirley is the bus driver, so she told us to use EITHER of those challenges. I did both! LOL! My card IS a Christmas card with non-traditional colors (Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizazz) AND I used plaid, paper pieced the coat and hat and I made a flower. I think this is eligible for the CCEE Stampers Challenge as well because that one is to use a flower that we made. I think my flower counts as home-made. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and the DSP is Pawsitively Prints.
This is a close-up so you can see the paper piecing on the coat and hat and the Dazzling Diamonds on her hat, coat and scarf. Thanks for stopping by!!
ETA: Lori Jane, I changed the text to RED where I mentioned the colors of the card stock. Thanks for your kind comment! If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask or email me:

Sweet Christmas card, CarrollAnn! I love the pink and pear pizzaz and the sparkle on the little girl's fur, and your handmade flower is terrific!
