52CCT - Pick a Previous ....

...  Good morning!!!  Well, it's December now - only a few more weeks until Christmas day, but there's still time for one more card - or even two.  If you've been playing along with 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown since the beginning of the year, you have got a good stash of cards already.  But, just in case you need a few more, we've got a special challenge for you this month.  You can Pick a Previous Anything - colour, sketch, theme or recipe from our 2014 challenges - just click on the archive tabs. We have a sponsor this month - Deedee's Digis and the winner of the December challenge will get a fabulous prize from her.  I used her digi on this card:

Stamps: Deedee's Digis - Ugly Sweaters; Simon Says Stamps - Sweater Words & Appliques; Winnie & Walter - The Big, The Bold and Merry
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Melon Mambo; Cuttlebug EF - Winter Wonderland; Vellum; Clear Embossing Powder; Copic Markers


I decided to revisit the colours from our October challenge - I like these clear, fresh colours and thought they'd be perfect for some Christmas sweaters of the "ugly" variety!!!  I printed the sweaters onto plain white card, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out.  I embossed some white card with bold snowflakes and ran a pink marker round the edge to give a fine outline of colour.  As I didn't want to hide too much of the front I stamped a fun sentiment on to some vellum.  On the inside I kept it really, really simple with a mat of bright pink and a bold greeting.

Do check out our blog to see what challenges the rest of the team have decided to play along with.  You've got lots of time to play along - this challenge runs until 19th December - we'll be posting the winners at the end of December.  Do drop by later - I've got another card to share with you - but it's a secret :)  See you later!
