Christmas Card Challenges #1: Color Challenge

It's the beginning of another year at Christmas Card Challenges. Yes, our Christmas cards for this year should be completed by now and we're going to begin working on our cards for 2015. {smile}

The challenge this week is a Color Challenge using Christmas Tones

I had so much fun creating this card, that I might just do a few extra to send out this year.  I squiggled a bit of lime green glitter glue onto watercolor cardstock in the shape of a tree. I punched a star out of silver glittered cardstock and added that to the top of the tree design. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

Very simple, very quick ~ except for the drying time ~ and it can be mailed without extra postage, which is a plus.  Here are the colors for this week's challenge . . . I love the greys and greens together.

Just think ~ if you get started now on your 2015 Christmas cards, you won't be in the same situation next year that you're in this year . . . scrambling to get your cards completed . . . so you can get them in the mail . . . in time for Christmas. {smile}  Or, is that just me that's scrambling?

Please be sure to stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the other Design Team members created this week for your inspiration.  Or better yet, check out each DT member's blog. I've listed the direct link to their blog below. We have several new members and I do believe this week is by far one of the best ever . . . you'll love all the wonderful ideas.  Then grab your crafting supplies and begin crafting !
