This week at 52 Christmas Throwdown the challenge is to use the colors green and purple. I chose to use one of the sketches out of the 52 Christmas Throwdown sketch archive, and here is the sketch I used.
Here is the card I made using the sketch.
The stamps I used for my creation are from the Penny Black stamp set, " Most Wonderful". I stamped the ornament image 3 times, once in green, and 2 times in purple. I used one of the purple images for the base image, I cut out the ribbon and the clock face out of the green, attached the ribbon with dimensional tape, and used double sided tape for the clock face. I then cut out the snowflake and hands from the other purple image, and adhered it to the top of the face with dimensional tape. I made the layered band using a snowflake punch that I have in my stash, layered them, and attached them to the card base before I added my image. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I had all those little snowflakes left over after punching the border, so I added them to the card as well, adding Jewel Dazzles to the middle of them.
I really liked the way this card turned out, so I made a couple more. I really like this color combination, it isn't exactly traditional, but they do look lovely on the card.
