Christmas Ombre, Except not really.

The theme this month at Jingle Belles

What does that mean?
you ask.
Well, it means pops of colour on a background of white.
Well, in this case, it means I blurfed around the interweb
and found some pictoral inspiration
and made a few cards.

I completely got lost and forgot the background was
supposed to be white.
Ah well, such is the life of an artist.

First, I liked this:
and I made this:
No white to speak of, except for the card base..
I had fun making it though.

Then I liked this:
and I made this:

You're right.
Virtually no white again.
I meant well.
Please forgive me.

I used this free colouring page that I
found to make the ornaments:
Christmas Ornaments

(A day after this post)
I woke up feeling guilty and made another card
that really DOES meet the challenge criteria. Here is my inspiration:
And here is my card:

I know, I know,
I could benefit from some

The Belles are pretty good.

I don't think they will hunt me down and make
me sit in the (white) corner.
I got three cards made.
And I followed their inspiration.
So it counts.
So there.

How many cards have you got made, my friend?
Well, get a move on.
