Hello!  This week is color challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, and we have a fun, non-traditional color palette for this.  Our challenge graphic shows five colors and you should choose at least three of them for your creation. Using white or cream cardstock for a background, and black ink for stamping images and sentiments, is also allowed.

I decided to keep with a mainly pastel color scheme and omitted the teal from the color palette, using the other four colors – which, in an interesting coincidence, are all retired Stampin’ Up colors.  I’ve paired the color challenge with one of last fall’s OWH Stars & Stamps sketches, turning the sketch on its side to accommodate the image.  I used an embossing folder on the large purple block, and the yellow cardstock banner has a subtle linen texture.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you can make with these colors!  If you need more inspiration first, go visit the 52{C}CT site and see what the rest of the design team has created.  Be sure to link your card at the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, January 17.  We look forward to having you join us!
