Having a Gelli Christmas

Friday is the start of a new challenge week over at Crafts4eternity and our theme for the week is
A Non Traditional Christmas 
we would like to see any Christmas project (doesn't have to be a card) with a non traditional theme, so a chance to use different colours, themes etc a little bit away from the norm.
For my design piece I have kept it quite simple and just used one of my stashed gelli prints that I did a while back.

Whilst I have used a sizzix Christmas tree die I think the design of the gelli print is very non traditional. 
I have torn some of the paper to create snow on the hills that the trees are growing on. A simple sentiment of "Wish" from Tim Holtz seasonal chit chat stickers and some punched stars complete the card.
The card has a lot of dimension as I layered everything using pinflair glue.
So why not pop over, break with tradition, and join in this week with us.
One randomly chosen winner will win a $6 gift certificate from Floppy Latte Designs.

Thanks for stopping by
