Christmas Card with Non Traditional Colors

One of the challenges on the Weekly Christmas Card Challenge group that I am part of was to create a Christmas card with Non Traditional colors. Also, I just happen to love the color combination from this week's The Playdate Cafe Challenge #116 - Plum, Pear and Moldy Cheese. So, here is my card combining both of these,


I used the Lawn Fawn Vintage Ornaments set for this card. I embossed the ornament image with silver embossing powder and then sponged some Ranger DI Dusty Concord. I would have preferred a lighter purple, but this was the only good purple that I had. I then cut out the ornament and popped it up with some foam dots. The background bluish patterned paper is from Becky Higgins Project Life cobalt edition. I did not have a true pear color - this stars patterned paper was the closest that I found.

Here is the PDCC 116 Color swatch,
