Our heat wave finally seems to be over, wooohooo! The outside temp is 63 degrees and inside my house has fallen below 80 degrees. I've got my Santa leggings on, the Hallmark Christmas movies are playing on the TV and the Power Poppy Creative Confetti challenge is perfect for me today!

This weeks challenge is all about Christmas! Power Poppy also has a sale going on until the 12th where all holiday clear sets and digi's are 30% off so of course I had to grab a couple clear sets to add to my collection. Today's card features an image from one of the sets I just got, Spice It Up. I can remember my mother putting cloves in oranges and then spreading cinnamon sticks around them so this image definitely took me back to my childhood.

I'm very traditional when it comes to Christmas colors so having yellow and orange on a Christmas card is definitely new for me but I think the colors work well with the paper I decided to go with. The strip of orange DSP across the bottom really pops against the brown strip and I'm really happy with how it looks!

Make sure you pop on over to the Power Poppy blog to play along, it's always a lot of fun!
