Christmas Card Throwdown: Merry Days

 The current challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is a color challenge which includes the color purple.  I have a work friend who adores purple and I usually need a push (or a throwdown) to play with purples!  Here's what I did with the bold colors.

Merry Days

This card started with the idea that I had snowflakes in those colors. So I added some trees, a little snow on the ground and a wonderful bold sentiment.  The trees are from two sets by Alexandra Renke - the Pine Trees and the Pine Trees Little. I love that they are slightly different shapes and some are open. For interest, I used polka dot paper for the green tree and I added sparkle to the teal tree.

Merry Days

A big thank you to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for pushing me into the purples!

  1. Oh, what a lovely, bright, clean, zingy card! I'm glad we prompted you to use purple, your card is fabulous. I'm sure your friend will love it! Thanks for playing along with us at 52CCT this week.

  2. Ha ha, I'm the same way with purple! But I have to say you rocked it here, this is fun!

  3. How wonderful - this is one awesome shade of purple, Kim - you should push yourself to get it out more often! Though Halloween seems an easier time than Christmas, right?

  4. A wonderful interpretation of the colour challenge. I love how you put all of your elements together. Thanks for being a part of the challenge over at 52Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. I hope you will join us again in the future.
