PS Cool Shades/RS#38 - Seasons Greetings

Hi there!  Hope all of you that celebrated Thanksgiving enjoyed your day!  The card I have for today was created using two challenges, for the colors, I used the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge which was to use the color pallet below and for my layout I used the Retro Sketches Challenge #38 and turned the sketch on it's side.
The Cool Shades for the PS color challenge were far from your traditional Christmas colors but I was determined to use them to create a Christmas card with the fun new Paper Smooches stamp set Swanky Snowdudes that I recently purchased.  My card came together with a mix of different My Mind's Eye designer papers, Copic markers for coloring this cute image, some glitter, silver twine and a punched out snowflake with button.  For colors I used basic gray, ruby red and brocade blue card stock.
 Thanks for your visit!
