Hello!  It’s the fifth Saturday of the month, which means that at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, it’s Pick a Previous week!  Since I’m hosting the challenges this month, I had the opportunity to choose exactly what type of “previous” to use for inspiration, and I’ve chosen Previous Colors.  Go to the 52{C}CT site, click on the “Colour Combos Archive” tab, and select one of the 25+ color combinations to use in creating your Christmas or wintry card.

I’ve chosen the July 2012 combo for my card:  black and white with a splash of blue.  This gave me the chance to use this cute penguin stamp again.  I colored his scarf blue and stamped some blue snowflakes on the background panel.  The layout for this card is from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and I’ve squished it into a rectangle.

Which color combination will you choose?  Link your creation at the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time/6:00 p.m. GMT Friday, April 4.  We’d really appreciate it if you join us!  Thanks for stopping by here today.
