52 Christmas Throwdown Color Challenge

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.

I think this is a very classy card, and I love the stamped image. I'd never have thought of layering the different colours like this, it really brings the stamp image to life. Good luck in the challenge.

I think this is fabulous. I do like the you've used an old sketch too. The layered Christmas ornament is very elegant. Love the pretty layers behind too. Thanks so much for playing along with our colour challenge at 52CCT this week! Good luck with the DT Call.
