Christmas Colors? What are you Favorites?

It's time for Sharon's annual Non-traditional Christmas Colors Stamp Simply Challenge! This week, let's make Christmas cards or projects in NON-traditional Christmas colors, meaning NO typical red and green. To get you thinking, some personal favorites of Sharon's are Bashful Blue, Amethyst, Celery, Pink or Rose. I went with the Pink, Rose, and Celery for my Advent project today!
ALL papers on this creation are from Sharon's YULETIDE kit, the ribbons too! I did add some velvet ribbon around the box, and some of the velvet ric rac on the inside.

A bit of Grandma's writing! This tag is from the tag pad in the YULETIDE kit, as are the adhesive rhinestones. FYI, all kit contents are also available for individual purchase! The advent box is a Kaiser product that I got from Ellen Hutson. You can see the top of the individual boxes with white acrylic paint on the edges, I only painted the edges of the boxes and edges of the large box! All paper is adhered using scor tape with edges sanded! What a labor of love, I've been working on this all week! I'll post again with all the stamping details!
