It's the Best Time of the Year!

I love the monthly sketch over at Stampers Corner and September was no different only I am just now getting to it and it is October! Yeesh! The new one comes out on the 9th so technically I am not late LOL! That is my story and I am sticking to it! You can find it here:
September Stampers Quest Sketch

I also decided that I wanted to use the Copic Color Challenge from Artful Sentiments by Kimm Copic Challenge #27 Although I had to substitute for one of the markers I didn't have :) I used Y17 * YR16 * YR31 * R05 * 0

I picked out Papers to use Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday paper and then some
Orange Fizz, Gumdrop Green & Cryogen White all from Paper Temptress

So I had all this stuff picked out and no motivation to make a card so I was reading my email and saw that Pamela has a super sale going on now for some of her Christmas sets!
HERE is the link. What better way to show you need the stamps then to use them and share the results with you right! but ummmm all the papers and colors are well fall"ish".

Well I decided I didn't care and went ahead with it anyway I mean come on the papers were marked "& Holiday". I choose to use the Holly Jolly Christmas set
I love the Jack In the Box in it :) Like the sparkle I added to his hat {grin}

Here is what I ended up with :)

What do you think did non traditional colors work ok?

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I colored it to match with the R05 Copic.

Don't forget to get over to FCD and shop!
