Traveler's Inspiration Challenge 1

I love this card!! Whoever gets this card at Christmas will probably wonder why in the world I used these colors for a holiday card.

When I first started working on Tina's challenge, I started with a shoe image. Well... I had a cute idea but not the right stamp. The one shoe stamp that I have is too small and didn't stamp real well. So... the 2nd thing I thought of was the modern/retro (don't really know what you call it) colors that are used in Christmas decor, etc. Now... I love the traditional Christmas colors and I love everything vintage Christmas, but when I walk through stores and see these colors in Christmas trees and on Christmas decor... my heart skips a beat. I love color!

So... thank you Tina for inspiring a Christmas card or two. It feels nice to get started so early!!
