Mistletoe kisses

Hello lovely people,

That's another couple of study days at Bath completed so my next challenge is to complete my Christmas cards! 

While I am drowning in Christmas images and glitter it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...traditional or non-traditional Christmas colours
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons for this challenge

I often favour non-traditional colours (well, you know how much I love pink!) but this year I found some really lovely papers in reds/greens/creams so it's traditional all the way for me!

How adorable are this couple?!
A great image for a first Christmas as Mr & Mrs.

I think these colours look especially lovely teamed with Kraft card for a really cosy feel and I am glad I bought a few more red roses in my last flower order!
