This month it is all about breaking out of your comfort zone and trying out some non-traditional color schemes for a holiday card or tag!  Sometimes it is so easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes time to paper craft fro the holidays, so here is your chance to let loose, have fun and try something brand new!  I have put together six non-traditional holiday color schemes together for you above.  Pick one that inspires you and try your hand at using it as a starting point for a special holiday themed project!  Keep in mind, you don't have to use all four colors for any given scheme, just go with the flow and use as many or as few as you like!
