Tangerine and Olive Christmas


I like using non-traditional colours and colour combinations for Christmas, so I thought I'd give this combination from Dynamic Duos the Christmas treatment.

Actually, tangerines are Christmassy - when we were kids it was the only time we saw them, in the bottom of the Christmas stocking!  Fortunately there were no olives in the bottom of the stocking, I couldn't have eaten them as a kid, but I love them now.


The stamp image and sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Stamps (don't forget to comment on Steph's blog for some fabulous blog candy - it's a wordlwide offer), and the background paper is Madison from Penny Black.

The challenge at CASE Study is to case this card by October muse, Julia Stainton:
