"Sassy Santa Pin-Up" Christmas Card

The back of the "Bling It" package I used behind image.  
(sorry about the glare) 

Sassy Progressive challenge is giving this lovely image to anyone wanting to participate in their monthly challenge.  Okay now the hitch:  no red, green, gold or silver.  WOW that was a bit harder than I thought it would be.  I used unusual colors, black, kraft, pink and violet!  Not sure they would go together, but I kind of like it.  Let me know what you think.  The ornament behind the image is cut from the back of a "Bling It" package that I have been saving.  You know you all save all those lovely papers you never know if you will use, but hope to.   lol  :)

Sassy Studio Designs - "Santa Pin-Up" image
