Colour challenge ... with your choice.

Good morning friends, 
Today we have another  special Colour challenge at The Outlawz. You get to choose 2 of the colours to use along with yellow and a BONUS ... you also choose the twist.

Our inspirational photo was chosen by Laurian and I think it is such a lovely festive one, so perfect for this time of the year.

The DT have made some lovely cards for your inspiration.
Just remember to use the yellow with 2 colours from the photo and you get to decide on the twist, and let us know when you enter your card what your choice is...

Our sponsor this month is Gerda Steiner Designs and she has such cute images, so lovely for this time of the year, which some of the DT have used.

I have decided to make a centre step card for a change, using the image Christmas Elephant.
The 2 colours I have chosen are blue and kraft (brown) with the twist...add flags

Here is what I used:
Paper...LeCrea Design ...Snow and Kraft card.
Image..coloured with distress inks, added glitter to the gift and for the snow, Also some puffy paint for the trim on the hat. Cut it out with an X-cut die
Flags..cut them with a Joycraft die and the letters are also a Joycraft die. Attached them to a string and used 2 resin snowflakes to hold the banner.
Will enter the following challenges: 
Scribble and Scrap Crafts #7...Anything goes
The Corrosive challenge #189...Anything goes
Joanna Sheen challenge...Make it sparkle
Creative Inspirations Paint challenge...Inspired by Merry Cjristmas
