Hello! This week is color challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  Our challenge hostess, Ruth, has chosen a fun, non-traditional color palette for this.  The challenge graphic shows five colors and you should choose at least three of them for your creation. Using neutral colors for stamping images and sentiments is also allowed.

After some thought, I finally decided that these colors could work for a poinsettia.  I printed this poinsettia digital image twice so that I could layer the petals over the leaves and give the flower a bit of dimension.  The sentiment was also computer generated.  The layout for this card is the mirror image of this week’s sketch challenge at CAS – Colours and Sketches squashed into a landscape orientation.  The flourishes are stamped onto the berry colored panel.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you can make with these colors!  If you need more inspiration first, go visit the 52{C}CT site and see what the rest of the design team has created.  Be sure to link your card at the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, May 16.  We look forward to having you join us!
