Hello!  It’s hard to believe November is halfway over already!

Over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we’ve been having fun with Louise‘s challenges this month.  This week she gives us a recipe challenge:  a one layer card, with a small amount of color, and either ribbon or bling.  I definitely have the one layer and the bling parts down, but I’m hoping the rest of my card meets Louise’s idea of a hint of color!  I wanted the tree to have the most color, but I didn’t want it to look like it was just floating on the card, so I added a couple of flourishes to replicate the edge of a drifting snowbank behind the tree.  I stamped the flourishes off on a piece of scrap paper before stamping them on the card, to get a very pale shade of grey.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you can create with this recipe! Link your work to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, November 22. We’d love to see what you create! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has made, too!

  1. This is lovely! I do like the tree with the soft swirls, and those swirls suggesting snow! Fab!

  2. This is fabulous, Patricia! I adore the way you did the gray swirls–this is so wintry looking! Beautiful! HUGS and have a great week! :) Mynn xx

  3. Yep, I think that qualifies as a hint of colour! This is one of my fave tree images, love the flourishes behind, so snowy looking! Thanks for doing such a great job with my OLC challenge.
