As You Like It Challenge #93 - Favourite Christmas Colours and WHY

Hi Crafters,

I hope you are getting ahead with your Christmas card making, if not then why not join in with our challenge at As You Like It with our theme of

FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS COLOURS
and WHY

This was a difficult choice for me. I love alternative colours for Christmas like Pink and White or Blue and Lilac but the traditional colours of Red Gold and Green just called out to me for this sweet image, so here's Bert's Christmas, isn't he adorable?

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Trimcraft - Santa's Workshop

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fussy & Fancy - #176 Ice/Snow with lots of texture and sparkle

Unicorn Challenge - #15 Snow/Snowflakes

Glitter 'N' Sparkle - #214 ATG
Fab 'n' Funky - #327 Digi Girls or Hats
Crafty Creations - #328 Animals

Phew, that's quite a few challenges, I don't usually enter that many but there are lots of Christmas themed ones about right now of course.
