Hello there!  This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we have a fun recipe challenge for you!  Ruth, our challenge hostess, has come up with a short list of elements that need to be included on your Christmas or wintry card:  Coloring an image, adding rhinestones or ribbon (or both), and using the debossed side of embossed cardstock.

When I read the recipe list, I knew I’d use this cute Rhubarb digital image.  Actually, I’ve used the mirror image of the digi stamp, so that it wouldn’t seem like Rhubarb was looking off the edge of the card.  That’s one really awesome thing about digis vs. traditional stamps – being able to manipulate them to suit your needs when necessary!  :)  I’ve used red and clear rhinestones for the ornaments on the tree image and in the corners of the focal panel.  To highlight the debossing, I swiped an ink pad across the cardstock.

The layout for this card is taken from the current Seize the Sketch challenge – but once again, I’ve done some manipulating.  First I turned the sketch on its side.  Because my focal panel is larger than drawn in the sketch, I opted to leave off the “any shape” element.  I felt that would be a bit too much on a card that was already pretty well packed with layers and embellishments.

Go check out the 52{C}CT blog to see what the rest of the design team has cooked up with this recipe!  Then come up with your own concoction and share your work with us at the challenge site.  You have until 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, May 23 to link your card.  We hope you’ll join us!  Thanks for stopping by today.
