Hello there!  It’s color challenge time at Christmas Card Throwdown.  This time we have a sort of modern twist on the traditional red and green and white, with burgundy, lime green, and cream.

I had this wreath stamp set out the other day for my card for the current challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, so I decided to use it again for my card for CCT.  I pulled out two retired Stampin’ Up greens for the lime part of the color combo and went with more of a dark cherry red rather than a true burgundy.  The vanilla card base and image panel were the easy way to work in the cream part of the challenge.  Although it doesn’t show well in the photo, the card base is textured cardstock, while the image panel is smooth.  The bow was stamped and cut from a scrap of vanilla, and it’s raised from the image panel with shims of scrap cardstock for just a bit of dimension.  The layout comes from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, but I’ve turned the sketch 90° on its side.  Since it’s holiday challenge time at Addicted to Stamps and More, I’ll enter this card there, too.
