Smudgy Antics Challenge and The 12 Days of Creepmas Day 9

It is Monday so that means it is time for another challenge 
over at Smudgy Antics.

The challenge theme this week 

Not only do you get to be inspired by VINTAGE CHRISTMAS COLOURS, but the challenge will go on for TWO WEEKS!  Yep.  We would like you to be able to play along and also have time to spend with your loved ones over the holiday season so we are giving an extra week to complete the task at hand which is to use at least 3 of the colours in the bar below.  I know monitors vary with their colors so we have named the colors as well so you may get as close as you possibly can to the colour scheme at hand.
I dare you to try to use them all ;)

Using at least one stamped image (real or digi) and following the rules posted on the left sidebar, over at the Smudgy Antics Blog, we at Smudgy Antics challenge you to get your Vintage Christmas Colours on display!  
 Show us how crafty you can be! 
You do not need to make a vintage project, just use the vintage colours.

You can stick with paper crafting or you can go three dimensional.  The more creative, the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box!

I am combining my Smudgy Antics project with my Day 9 of the
12 Days of Creepmas with Smeared and Smudged.  You should have arrived here from The Smeared and Smudged Blog and your next stop on the hop is Carolyn's Blog.  The full blog roll is in my left sidebar.

I will warn you, my project for today isn't too creepy.  Don't worry.  I will make up for that later!  Here is my offering:

I tried to use all of the colors in the block above. 
 I think I succeeded, or at the very least was very close.
I used a new Snowman from Smeared Ink called "Twice as Evil".  He has a few creepy friends in the shop too.  The image was colored with Copic markers and the background uses Distress Inks and Tulip puffy paint in white (thanks, Kristy).  I used various papers from DCWV and some cardstock die-cut letters. I have no clue where those came from.

Now it's your turn to get crafting and hopping!
