Mad For Markers - DT - Untraditional Christmas Colours

Hi Blogging Buddies,

Today I have another Christmas card in untraditional colours for the M4M Challenge.
I am actually making some head way with my Chrissie cards...but havent started my main bulk lot yet...I like all of them to be exactly the same. These ones will be perfect to send out to the schools I have been teaching at this term. Anyway onto the details about my card...
I coloured in another Cute LOTV Christmas bear...I have really fallen in love with these bears. because of my DP (very, very old and was the last little bit of it) is all cool silvers and blues I didnt want to colour the bear brown so I opted for greys. I actually love colouring with greys. They blend so nicely together.
The colours I used are:
Greys: C-1, C-3, C-5, C-7
Blues for hat: BG09, BG05, B00
Star and ground: B60, BV23
Outline: BG10 Kindy Glitz
I cut the snowflakes out on my Cricut and covered them with Kindy Glitz as well. I added silver, white, blue gingham and white mesh ribbons. The base card is Next to Navy and Whisper White. I kept the design pretty simple.
