Hello!  It’s time for another color challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Jacqueline, our hostess, has given us some bright, bold colors from which to choose and to pair them up with gold.

I opted to use the minimum requirement of three of the four colors, and I decided to use the current layout from Seize the Sketch for my card.  I had a hard time at first figuring out what to do for the half-circle part of the sketch, but then I figured this die with the stars around the outside of the circle would tie in with the tiny stars on the stocking in the middle.  The focal panel is attached with dimensional adhesive to accommodate the prongs of the gold brads. I’m wishing I’d chosen a different color green.  In real life, the ink matches the cardstock much better than the way it’s captured in the photo.

And now it’s your turn to show us what you can create!  We’d love it if you joined our challenge this week.  You have until 1:00 pm Eastern time Friday, February 14 to link your card at the 52{C}CT site. Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps: Holiday Baubles (Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Glorious Green, Real Red textured (Stampin’ Up)
Ink: Glorious Green, Real Red (SU); Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: gold brads, dimensionals (SU); Star Circle Nestabilities die (Spellbinders)
