Hello!  It’s the second Saturday of the month, which means it’s time for another color challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  It’s a monochromatic scheme of navy, light blue, and white, which is a good combination for wintry cards!  It’s all right to use black for a sentiment or for an outline image, but otherwise the colors used in your card need to stick to the color scheme.

It took me a while to figure out what to create.  My in-laws have been visiting this week and I’ve been spending time with them, so I needed to keep my card pretty quick and simple.  I decided to go with this older layout from the OWH Stars & Stamps sketches archive.  I chose this bear image because it would be quick to color and easy to put with the challenge color scheme.  (I did take a little liberty with the colors to make the bear’s nose dark gray; I felt black would be a bit too harsh.)  The navy vertical panel is embossed with snowflakes.

So, now it’s time for you to check out the other design team members’ creations, and then make a card with these colors to link to the challenge site!  We’d love to see what you can do!  Thanks for stopping by today.
