CCM320 - Color Challenge

Hey everyone! How's your weekend going so far? I've been working in my room today getting ready for some classes and thought I'd create a card for the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.
I really like all three of these colors, I think they compliment each other so well. Lost Lagoon has to be my favorite of this year's in colors.
So with the Pear Pizzazz in mind, I thought it was perfect to create a Christmas card. Granted, these aren't your usual Christmas colors, but I like the change.
I carried the patterns into the inside of the card. As you can see, I really like to layer my cards. I just think it adds so much color and interest.

I like how this card turned out. May just have to use it in a class! ;) I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I thank you for stopping by.
