Hello there!  It’s the second Saturday of the month, and that means it’s color challenge time at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This time we’re asking our challenge participants to be inspired by the classic color combo of red, black, and kraft.

It’s been a while since I’ve used any of my digital images on a card, but this one particular bear image seemed to be the perfect thing to use for the color challenge.  I’ve colored him with Copic markers and added some hand stitching along the edges of the image panel.  I’ve used the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout of my card.  I’ll admit that this card might be more accurately described as “clean and layered” rather than “clean and simple” but I’m going to go ahead and enter it into the current challenge at AAA Cards.
