52CC Throwdown and ColourQ

Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a marvelous weekend!

Have you all made your New Year's resolutions? I have made a couple that only my friends in blog land will appreciate. One is to participate in every weekly challenge over at 52CC Throwdown and my other is to find a new challenge blog that I can participate in - ColourQ

Last night I made a card for these two challenges -

The first week for 2013 at 52CC Throwdown is a sketch which I loved. The challenge over at ColourQ is to chose any of the colour palettes that the DT have used for their projects.


Here is my card -

I received the Punch Pal set on Friday (part of the Clearance Rack) and decided to ink it up. What a great set this is!! My first Christmas card for 2013!!! Only 51 more to go, girls lol.

I substituted Pear Pizzazz for Certainly Celery. I really liked this colour scheme from the moment I saw what Jen over at ColourQ had done with it. I didn't know if I could pull off a Christmas Card with it, but it worked really well!

Thanks so much for looking and have a great weekend xx


  1. A very fun glittery card. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at the colourQ!

  2. LOVE that red glittery paper, Kylie! Isn't glitter paper super fun?! I have that tree image set (does that make sense?) but haven't used it in a L O N G time! Time to dust it off! ;) Thank you SO MUCH for joining us at 52CCT! Just an FYI--we do have a DT call going on if you're interested! :) You just need to add DT to the end of your name when you enter to apply! HUGS!!!

  6. It turned out fabulously Kylie - what a great idea to use the red glimmer paper as a bold and gorgeous pop of color! So glad you've joined us this week at 52CCT and I hope you keep your resolution to be with us each week :o) You could consider the DT call too if you don't already have too many creative irons in the fire.

  7. Kylie, that is a fab Christmas card, those colours really suit a festive creation! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely card with us at 52 {C}CT! I've set and am hosting the challenges in January and this is the first sketch I've designed so I'm chuffed to see what folks come up with - thanks for taking part.
