Non-traditional Christmas

There's a new challenge, starting today, at SUO Challenges; non-traditional Christmas is the theme! I went with a non-traditional color combo for my design team sample; Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake. I'm also sharing this card over at Pink Paper Bakery, so the pink is very fitting!

A non-traditional Christmas is a very loose theme. You can use non-traditional colors or images. Come play along!

To create the background, I used an image from Gorgeous Grunge. I wanted to vary the length of the image, so I used a torn piece of scratch paper as a mask, allowing me to make the lined imaged shorter in some areas. I started by stamping the image repeatedly horizontally, and then I went back over it vertically. I think this pattern resembles burlap, which is a very popular look right now.
