Hello, Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  Time continues to fly by and we are in October!! Before we know it, it will be Christmas!!

Speaking of Christmas, ODBD just released many wonderful Christmas stamps and dies!  I am having so much fun making traditional and nontraditional Christmas cards.

Today I would like to share a card I made for the Shining the Light Color Challenge (ODBDSLC279) using non-traditional colors.

ODBD Stamps Used: Joys of the Season

ODBD Dies Used: Merry Christmas BorderHoly NightOvalsPierced OvalsBeautiful BordersPierced RectanglesRectanglesBoho Background

To create this card, I embossed rather than die cut the ODBD Boho Background and then sponged with purple, blue and green ink.

The Holy Night die is cut from black cardstock.  The image panel is framed with a metallic silver and purple cardstock.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Robin, Julie, and Diana.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

Thanks so much for your comments and views!! They are so appreciated!!

Oh, Chris, this is gorgeous, and I love the beautiful non-traditional colors - wow! It does remind me of stained glass, and these dies just shine against the sponged embossing. And I love the border across the top with the stunning bow! Beautifully finishes off this card! Stunning and so elegant! Hugs, dear friend! xoxo
