ACAD - non traditional Christmas

Whew!    I just finished an hour and a half phone session to get me e-mail and blog access corrected.  We subscribe to an on line service - it is scary and pricey, but seems to be worth it.  I am not sure just what caused the problem, but all is fine now.
This week's Card a Day (on Splitcoaststampers) challenge, issued by Nat, is to do a Christmas card in non-traditional colors.
This is about as non traditional as I get for Christmas cards - the papers all come from a Paper Studio pad called Faith.  The stamp is unmounted and I have forgotten where I got it.  Actually, I omitted a bit of the image - too big for this layout.  I think it works without the buildings of Bethlehem on the left.  The sentiment is Studio G.  I added gold ribbon and half pearls.

The second card uses many of the same elements, with some red and green added.
The sketch is here:

Wow, Dorothy, très bien! The image and sentiment you chose work wonderfully on this non-traditionally colored Christmas card.

It may be non-traditional, but it definately carries the feel of tradtional Christmas. Both versions are very nice.
