Hello!  It’s time to get back into the swing of challenges again at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  The purpose of our challenges is to allow our participants to build up a supply of Christmas cards to have ready to send once December comes around.  Plus, it’s just simply fun to create holiday cards all year long! :)

We’re starting off the month with a sketch challenge.  I’ve stretched the sketch from a portrait-oriented rectangle to a landscape-oriented rectangle, but otherwise I’ve kept pretty true to the way the sketch was drawn.  I’ve also kept my card rather clean and simple in design.  I did take the liberty of omitting the embellishment type thing that’s drawn like a postage cancellation stamp.  I couldn’t figure out what to use for that element that wouldn’t detract from the rest of the card.  I guess if I’d used an image other than the penguin I may have come up with something, but I feel like my creativeness is still trying to rebound from the holiday break.
