FCCB Challenge #239 ~ "Beyond Red & Green"

Hello & happy December to you! Of course, it's also Monday, which means it's time for another FCCB Challenge Me Monday....

Challenge #239 ~ "Beyond Red & Green"
 (create a holiday project without using red & green)

For this card I used my favorite cartridge of all time, "Art Philosophy". It really is a genius cartridge & every cut is useful. Even the font is outstanding. There is absolutely NO wasted space in this handbook! If you don't own this cartridge yet, the only way to purchase it is through a Close To My Heart consultant. My consultant is Diana Larson & she's fabulous! Click HERE to check out her online store. Ok, that's enough of my chit chat for one day! Finally, we arrive at my card....
