Analogous Holiday

Hi again! I am back with yet another Christmas card; I am having a lot of fun with all of the Christmas challenges this month. Did my title stump you? When I first saw the word 'Analogous' it sure stumped me! According to my friend Mynnette, "Analogous colors are colors that sit in a group of three right next to each other on the color wheel. We usually use these combinations when doing monochromatic artwork." Mynnette challenged us to do just that, in blues, for this week's Make My Monday challenge. I was able to do that and combine a few more challenges besides for today's card.

Here is my newest card:
