Hello!  It’s color challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and this week we have a fun one that allows for a lot of creative possibilities!  We’re asking our challenge participants to create Christmas or wintry cards using the colors black, white, and one additional color that each participant can choose for herself (or himself).

After some mental debate, I finally selected green as my additional color.  The first card I created looked better in my imagination than it did once I put it all together.  So I checked out this week’s challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch! and immediately thought, “Hey, I can do this!”  Four die cut squares, a stamped and punched ornament, a simple sentiment, a few card layers, and a sparkly rhinestone later, here’s the result:

I’m also submitting this card into the Holiday theme challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
