Happy Friday!!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration pic for you:

So many options to pull your inspiration from there.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my card:

When was the last time you left an image uncolored?  It was so hard to leave it plain!!  I'm still not really sure I like it, but it definitely does give a totally different (and fun) look to the card.

ABC Christmas--U for uncolored
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #199--something forgotten or never used (It isn't exactly forgotten, but I have had that green plaid paper forever and have never used much of it--it needs a special card, you know?)
Treasured Times Challenge #27--anything goes
Craft Hoarder's Anonymous #318--Layer it!
Sweet Stamps #192--anything goes
Crafting By Designs--get ready for Christmas
The Stamping Chef #52--anything goes
MFT #199--sketch
Divas by Design--Festive Florals/Christmas flowers
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Wonderful Wednesday--anything goes
Delightful Challenge--3's not a crowd (I used three rhinestones on the poinsettia and three gumdrops in the upper right corner)
Little Miss Muffet #97--If you go down to the woods (use a bear or fairy)

Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Poinsettia Bear" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas"
Dies: spellbinders "Layered Poinsettias"; Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"

I wouldn't have thought to leave an image uncolored but it looks perfect here. Love the windowpane effect.

Heather, c'est très sympa aussi de laisser l'image telle quelle, cela change et lui donne un air différent, mais on retrouve bien l'inspiration de l'image de départ, biz

This image look great uncoloured like that! Great idea with the mosaic feel and love the colours!
Thank you for playing along with us at Delightful Challenges. Good luck and hope to see you back soon!

Great card, but I don't think I would be able to leave it uncoloured either. I might try it and give it a go. I will probably fail though! LOL Thank you for joining in the Stamping Chef Challenge this time.

Hugs, Vannessa

Cute card! I love the way you created the squares and how you kept the image un-colored although I'm sure it's temping to color it. I think it looks terrific!
