Hello! It’s time for November’s color challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We have an updated twist on a classic color combination for you – bright red and lime green.
I’ve used this week’s sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches for my layout… which, truth be told, is a sketch I’d originally drawn for 52CCT back in 2013! A strand of Christmas lights seemed to be a good way to show off the 52CCT challenge colors, so I pulled out my Christmas lights stamps. I like that the bulb image is separate from the wire image, so that the bulbs can easily be stamped individually in whatever colors one chooses. I think the sentiment stamp echoes the idea of twinkling lights. I’ve added a couple of rhinestones to dot the letter “i” where it occurs in the sentiment. I’m not sure how well the texture of the red cardstock shows in the photo, but in real life it helps give a little extra visual interest to the card.
And now it’s your turn to show us what you can create! We’d love it if you joined our challenge this week. You have until 7:00 pm Eastern time Friday, November 18 to link your card at the 52CCT site. Thanks for stopping by today!
