Craftymess christmas in May

Well let's face it the weather certainly is more like our gloomy December's than May lol. This fortnight at Craftymess our challenge set by the lovely Shirley-Anne is to make a Christmas (card) in non-traditional colours. I don't generally make many cards so I scrapped and here is my layout;

I used My Mind's Eye wonderful 12 days of christmas range which uses pink, bright red, lime green, white, aqua and a touch of pine green instead of the more traditional deep red, dark green, cream and gold. 
The page shows my eldest in his first nativity aged 3 (he is in the orange) and even though the photo is terrible (the hall was not condusive to good photography and all but this one pic came out very dark) I wanted to record the memory of my little shepherd :)
Thanks for popping by please do have a go at the challenge x
