Merry Christmas


 This card was made for the October 2012 PaperTrey Blog Hop where we had to choose between some non-traditional color schemes for a Xmas card. I chose to play with this color scheme:

I took out the Train Tracks stamp set and paper pieced them.  It was tricy for me since I am not used to this technique. I used some white glossy accents for the clouds. I also added some Pink Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink on the gifts and added some glitter on the wheels.
