Challenge #27 - A holiday twist...

Hello everyone! The Character Cafe is in da' house!!!! Welcome ladies!!!! I love their images, but I must say I fell in love with their CHIBIS. They have these incredible digital images, with very different styles, so there is something for everyone! And, did you know they have a BLOG CHALLENGE?

The Character Cafe is going to be giving to one lucky winner a $15 gift certificate to their store! I guess you need to know what this week's challenge is all about... so here it is... it's a twist in your holidays... we want you to use a holiday color combination into a NON holiday card. (example: like a green and red NON xmas project)... got it? have fun!
