Hello!  It’s December, which means that Christmas is just a few short weeks away!  If you’ve been playing along with us at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown throughout the year, you should have a nice stash of holiday cards ready to send to your loved ones.  To close out the year, we’re having just one challenge in December, but it starts today and lasts until December 19.  We’re inviting our challenge participants to create a card using any one of our challenges from 2014.

I’ve chosen the August color challenge for my card and paired it with the current Freshly Made Sketches layout.  The snowflake is die cut from brushed silver cardstock.  For the background behind it, I first made a mask by cutting a circle into an index card.  I attached the mask to the ivory panel and sprayed gold shimmer mist over the opening.  The sentiment banner was cut from white cardstock and then I centered the sentiment on it, using gold ink.  The ivory panel was attached to a white card base.  All the lovely shimmer doesn’t show in the photo.  Oh well.
