Unusual Christmas Card

 
What do you think? I made this card for two challenges. One is a sketch challenge and one is a color challenge. It is pretty unusual for a Christmas card to be these colors but I went for it. I thought, well, it has red!

 
Here is a close up of the sentiment. I'll post it here too:
Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.
-Luke 2:12
It goes well with the image I think.
 
And here is the Color challenge from Colour Q #162:
 
 
And here is the sketch from Retrosketches #36:
 

 
I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly- Anything Goes with optional Christmas theme
Lady Anne's Challenges-Anything Goes
Make It Monday #114-Anything Goes
 
This was a really fun and interesting challenge!
I really enjoy comments and thanks for visiting!
