Stamp TV's CSS December Alumni Hop

Hi there
  it's that time of the month again when the STV Center Stage Alumni brings you a Hop and YOU have the chance to win a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs stamps...
the challenge this month is from me ... and it's to

create a Christmas project with non-traditional colors, absolutely no reds or greens!

Now you should have arrived here from the wonderful talented blog of KAREN  (and a huge welcome back Karen!!!)  if not and you want to start at the beginning, then head over to STV.

I went with blues and yellows..
the holiday decorators at the office buildings I manage provided the most gorgeous yellow poinsettias in our offices! I love them... so where
 do you go when you need a poinsettia stamp? 
 well Melanie's flower sets of course!

I used 3 of Melanie's sets...
from the "Pressed Flowers" set, stamped the background using Memento - Dandelion. Then stamped "Festive Frame" onto that using Memento- Teal Zeal. Stamped the poinsettias from the set "a Year of Flowers" (I'm sure every stamper in the WORLD has that set by now - an all time favorite "go to" set). Colored them using Copics Y06, 11, 28...then using heat n stick powder added my very fine glitter. Some of the frame was also colored with Copics...B18, 35, BG 18. 
The sentiment was stamped with Memento-Teal Zeal. 
Designer Paper is from My Minds Eye and stash ribbon. Gold pearls are done with Viva Pearl Pen....and that's it!

Now your next stop is over to the awesome blog of Lori .

Hope you were inspired to create with non-traditional colors...
wishing all a very Merry Christmas (I'm a Christmas gal instead of Happy Holidays!)
 Don't want to take my Christ out of Christmas...

hugs everyone...
