Hello!  It’s color challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown!  Since I’m the challenge hostess this month, I picked the color scheme this time, and it’s a bit nontraditional:  the pastel colors of soft pink, pale yellow, and light green.  I’ve based it off of a card I made for 52CCT a few years ago – click here to see it.

Once again, I used a sketch from the OWH Stars & Stamps blog for the layout of my card.  I’ve kept the tree idea from my earlier card and used the same colors of cardstock.  I used my glitter pen to add a tiny bit of sparkle to the star, but it doesn’t show well in the photo.  The ornaments on the tree are three different colors of self-adhesive pearls – pink, yellow, and ivory.  This card is being added to the stockpile I’m creating to send to Operation Write Home in the fall.
