Blue Christmas

I've missed several of the last challenges over at Jingle Belles so this weekend I set aside time to play along with my favorite Christmas challenge. Their current challenge is to create a Christmas card that predominantly features the color blue. While I'm normally very traditional when it comes to Christmas colors I love the color blue so I was ready to dive right into this challenge!

I also played along with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches again. I love this sketch, it's very versatile and I know I'm going to be using it a lot!

I had the patterned paper in my stash, it's from Carta Bella and the portion I used for the bottom has just a touch of red and brown, so the blue is still the main color of the card. The white polka dots made me think of snow so for my circle behind the tree I embossed it with a snowy embossing folder that is from SU. The tree is popped up with dimensionals. I made a set of 5 because I liked this design so much!
