Wicked Good!

Wicked, a slang term meaning awesome, great, wonderful. Growing up in New England we used it a lot during the 80's. However on SCS they have a challenge and the wicked stands for:
The challenge this month was hosted by Joanne Travis- she gave a (1)sketch which I flipped sideways. (2)Color combos was to use 2 of new in-colors and one neutral- I failed there having to use 3 colors to make my cards work for me.
(3) challenge to use a Christmas set in a "non-Christmas" way.
I chose to sue shellbrate set and to make it non-Christmas, I just covered the little holly on pail with my sentiment. I used new in-colors razzleberry, melon mambo and bermuda bay. I used the new in-color markers on watercolor paper and blended it with an aquapainter.
This card I used same sketch flipped, but made it a Christmas Card- as my blogging friend Mackenzie has been doing with all her cards to build up a stash. I figured I better catch up and start making some! I did use some dazzling diamonds too!
