52 {C}CT April Colour Challenge

Saturday at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown can only mean ONE thing : time for another challenge. This week it's all about Colour. Take a look at the colours picked by Deborah Frings, our super talented hostess for the month. We'll definitely be seeing some cool cards in the mix this week. You must use at least THREE colours in your project, but feel free to use more.

We also have the lovely Pat Couder showcasing her stunning creations this month. Please stop by and take a look at her card. Pat is an accomplished crafter - I guarantee you will be inspired.

Here's what I've come up with for this week's throwdown:

No patterned papers. Instead, I'm using Waltzing Mouse Stamps
to create my card. For the background I used the star stamps from
WMS Compliments Of The Season, stamped in Memento Sahara Sand.
In the middle of each star is a little blob of Bisque Liquid Pearl.

The focal image is one of the large ornaments from
WMS Vintage Ornaments, stamped in VersaColor Baby Blue.
All around the ornament I dotted some Baby Blue Liquid Pearls.
The greeting is from WMS Compliments Of The Season, stamped
in VersaFine Majestic Blue. To finish, some blue and white
Doodlebug twine 

For added dimension, I cut the WMS Vintage Ornaments 3 times with Spellbinders
2011 Heirloom Ornaments die and popped each layer on some foam tape. I cut out the
centres on two with Spellbinders Classic Oval die and stamped the greeting in on
the bottom layer to show through.  

The sentiment inside is from WMS Vintage Ornaments, stamped in
VersaFine Majestic Blue.

Hanging my ornament at these challenges:

Completely Christmas #7: AG Christmas
As You Like It: Favourite Style Of Stitching - Real because it adds texture to the project.
C.R.A.F.T. #254: Christmas
Sister Act Challenge #52: AG Cards only
CHNC Extra: April AG Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge #19: No Patterned Paper

Now it's your turn to create a festive card based on this week's challenge: Colour Combo. In order to be considered for Top Honour and Honourable Mentions, your new card must follow the challenge theme and you must link it to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge Blog by 6pm GMT / 1pm EST on Friday, 18 April. And here's the most important rule: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today, my friends and have a blessed weekend!
