Just 160 days to go...

...so it's not surprising there are lots of Christmas challenges on t'net.

Over on "Catch the Bug" they are celebrating Christmas in July by having a week of challenges - you really should drop in on them and take a look.

The challenge for Monday was 'Non-Traditional colours'...
I don't think you can get much further away from traditional red & green than Teal & Lavender.

I used last week's Friday Freebie from the website to make my card - it's a fun image that is intended to be used as a tag but I thought it made a perfect topper.
Aww, don't you just love this little character...
I hand wrote the words 'You' and 'Me' to complete the sentiment and added some punched fronds and teal pearls.
The topper is mounted on lavender glitter dot paper and the base card is smooth white CS. I added some Ice Stickles to the fur on the hat to add a bit more bling and there you have it.

The topper is coloured using Copic pens.

A quick, fun little card........................
