Swap Bot Holiday Colors Collage Postcards

These are postcards I made for a swap I just hosted. I wanted to use holiday colors in a collage, but not use (necessarily) holiday images. I just thought it would be a fun experiment, and it was. I had fun making mine and I got some great ones in return. So I mostly did red and green for traditional Christmas colors, but then I did the one white and blue, which I thought of as icy wintry colors. The image on that one is from a really beautiful illuminated Bible that we saw an exhibit of at the MIA and it was just gorgeous. My favorite is the top one, with what looks like half a watermelon. Actually it's a pickle from the Gedney's pickle hat we got at the MN State Fair this year.
