September Colour Challenge

Good morning all. Are you ready for another round of festive fun? It's Week #2 and we have a Colour Challenge for you. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a Christmas project in the colour combination shown in the prompt:

Red  OR  Blue  +  Black  AND  White  +  Silver  OR  Gold


This is, after all, a festive challenge and we really want you to have fun. So we've decided to be a little flexible with the Red and Blue. You may use various shades of Red (such as burgundy, poppy, crimson, scarlet, excluding pink) OR Blue (royal blue, sky blue, cornflower blue, navy, excluding purple).

We also have a sponsor supporting us this month - Deedee's Digis - and some of the team will be using digi images on their cards. When you have a moment, check out Deedee's online store - there's no shortage of cute images there!



Are you ready to play along? Here are some wonderful makes by the DT to inspire you:

August Pick a Previous Challenge

Hi! and welcome to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge! We're so glad you could join us.

My name is Gill, and it's my final week as hostess. I've really enjoyed designing new challenges for you each week and seeing your wonderful cards and creative talent fulfilling the brief.  I would like to say a big thank you for joining us to share your wonderful creations - you are all amazing! 


So, before I hand over to our new hostess - the amazingly talented Asha
for my final challenge, I would like you to pick a previous sketch

You can choose from any of the previous sketch challenges - there's a handy list to choose from in our archive file. You can change up the shapes, rotate the layout, make any shape of card you like - as long as you follow the basic sketch layout, we would love to see it. Don't forget to let us know which sketch you have selected.  

So, the choice is yours - pick your favourite, or maybe a sketch challenge you've missed previously, and show us what you come up with ...


And to help you, here's some inspiration from the Design Team ...
