52 CC Throwdown - Colour Challenge

Hi there!!
This was a REAL challenge with these colours over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown this week. I love non-traditional colours but I was so unsure about this.
With no real plan, I sat down last night and started to give it a go. I had all sorts of different ideas but I am fairly happy with how it all ended up.
The DP I have used are from Stampin' Up and a 6x6 pad called 'Home for Christmas'.
The stamp is from my Ornament Keepsake set and inked up with Chocolate Chip. The sentiment and little flourishes are from Inspired by Stamping and also inked with Chocolate Chip. With the colours being so 'warm and cosy' I thought the Warm Wishes was extra nice.
I have created the shaped panels by using my Circle punch from my Itty Bitty set and chopping off a bit of the corners.
Here is the colour inspiration for you - (which I am very inclined to love now)
Head on over and check out the wonderful inspiration from the DT!
Thanks for looking xx
