One Thing Leads To Another And Suddenly It's Christmas

Hello.  Welcome.  A series of events resulted in this alternative Christmas card.  Over at CHNC  Hazel wanted a Christmas card with black.  I had been looking through my precuts box and seen a santa sledge and a palm tree in black and when I saw the tropical theme at CASology it was a bit of a eureka moment.

I tried it with white, but that was too stark.  It didn't look good on cream and then I thought tropical, hence the orange base card

I used Sizzix Palm Tree die and Britannia Christmas Flight die cut from black card.
