Creatalicious #104 - Merry and Bright

Hello my friends.  Has November been as busy for you as it has been for me? I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I've done some traveling this month. First I went out to Tempe Arizona for a 4-day Boot Camp with Jennifer Dove.  What a fabulous time. I'll have to post some pictures of what we did and some of the people that I met. It was very intense - 4 days of coloring and learning new techniques and brushing up on the old ones. I was home for a week and then fly out to California to spend Thanksgiving with my oldest daughter and most of her family. The trip was nice and uneventful with lots and lots of food.

Luckily I did find time to work on my card for this month's Creatalicious Challenge.  Our theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with Optional Traditional Christmas Colors. Easy, peasy. I hope you play along with us.  Here is the card that I created.
