Hello there!  Even though here in the United States people are getting ready this weekend for Independence Day, it’s always the Christmas season at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  The first Saturday of the month means it’s sketch challenge time.

I’ve kept my card very clean and simple in style.  The sketch is drawn up as a square card, but I’ve stretched it out into a landscape-oriented rectangle.  I’ve substituted a snowman for the triangle in the sketch. He’s kind of triangular!  I had the yellow cardstocks out on my desk after working on another card, and decided to go against the usual Christmas and wintry colors and use them for today’s card.  The “warm wishes” sentiment made me think of using orange for the circular element, making the circle appear somewhat like the sun.  Anyway, I think the card turned out pretty cute – and it was a good way for me to think outside of the box and use some colors that I tend to shy away from.

  1. Elle t’as été inspirée par le soleil de ce nouvel été Patricia, elle est lumineuse, j’ai bien peur que ce bonhomme n’y survive pas longtemps, biz

  2. It’s good to challenge ourselves to use different colours sometimes, isn’t it? Your card looks perfect in orange with your cute little snow man. It will stand out in the sea of red, green and white at Christmas.
