The Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}

Hello and welcome to The Challenge! Each week we have a fun challenge for you to try! This week we have Theme Challenge! We are looking for Christmas cards!!! It's that time of year and we want to see what you are creating!

You are welcome to use the Inspiration photo for direction or create a Christmas card with an entirely different colour palette! You decide! For my card, I decided to CHEAT! I created two cards the same but with different colours! 

My blue inspired card is from the Merry Monday Challenge and I used Red & Green on my 2nd card to match this challenge! Both cards work for our Christmas theme! So share away! I am not sure what one I like better but the design makes me happy because it is thin for mailing abroad!

We are thrilled to have Geri Greening as our Featured Designer for the month and Kim Lackenbach as our Guest this week! Welcome, ladies! I just love your gorgeous cards!
