Hello there!  It’s color challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  We have kind of a “pick your own” deal this time – we’d like to see what colors you like pairing with kraft.

I’ve always liked the look of light blues and light browns together, so I’ve put them together for my card.  When I saw the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, it made me think of snowflakes, so that worked perfectly for me.  I’ve stamped the snowflakes (using two shades of blue) and the sentiment onto shimmery white cardstock.  Hopefully the photo shows some of the shimmer.  I sponged some pale blue ink around the edges of the white panel.  Once I had the card all assembled, it looked like it was lacking something, so I added iridescent rhinestones to the centers of some of the snowflakes for extra sparkle.  Honestly, this was one of the quickest cards I’ve made recently!  It’ll be going into the box I’ll be sending to Operation Write Home before the end of the month.
