Hello!  It’s time for our first color challenge of the year at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  It’s a lovely monochromatic scheme:  shades of blue.

I’ve chosen some blues that include a couple of retired Stampin’ Up colors.  It’s nice to use some of my older supplies!  The layout for this card is from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  The card looked a little plain once I got it all put together. I wanted to dress it up a bit, but still keep the card within Operation Write Home guidelines, so I decided to add some tiny rhinestones to work as the ornament hangers.  They don’t show too well in the photo, but they do add a bit of sparkle in real life.
