Cream, green & blue Christmas?

Well these are not conventional Christmas colours, I'll admit, but in a funny kind of way they work really well together. Even the delightfully summery Basic Grey Wisteria papers manage to look festive here. Sort of. Maybe?

I've combined Basic Grey's recipe of 4 different embellishments (gold ribbon, gold mesh, white brads and white snowflakes), 3 patterned papers, 2 images (Stampington's Holiday Cube: Santa and the gold lettering background) and 2 sentiments (from Studio G), with Simon Says Stamp's "let it snow" and Stampin' for the Weekend's "winter", Colour Create's "robin egg blue, sea foam green and cream, and winter", and this sketch from Creatalicious Challenges which should also include distressing:

So what do you think? Is it Christmassy enough?

Oh, it's definitely Christmassy. I just love what you did with the color challenge. I also love the tags and the ribbon. It looks like a big gift to be opened. Love those snowflakes too. Thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. I hope to see more of your beautiful creations again soon.
xoxo, Christine
