Blue Christmas

Christmas is not a time to be blue but a time to be happy, however, the challenge at Phindy's Place this week is called Blue Christmas. We want to see you make Christmas cards with blue as the predominant colour.

You don't have to use a Phindy image but there are so many fabulous images in her store that will lend themselves to a blue Christmas card so pop over and pick up a few. If you do use a Phindy image, make sure you follow the instructions and enter your lovely creations twice.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
