Hello!  I hope your weekend has gotten off to a good start!  Because it’s a fifth Saturday of the month, this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we have a “Pick a Previous” challenge for you.  We’d like you to choose one of our previous color challenges and use that to create your card.

I really liked the April 2014 challenge colors, and since I’d missed participating in that one because I was out of town, I knew that was the color scheme I wanted to use for this week’s card.  I’ve used four of the six colors from the graphic – all three blues, plus kraft.  I created a watercolor resist for the focal panel by heat embossing the snowflakes with white ink and white embossing powder and then spreading a watercolor wash over them using inks in the three shades of blue.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut label and added some ribbon and brads to attach it to the card front.  This was a really fun card to make.  I’ll have to do the watercolor resist again sometime.
