Merry Christmas with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Hi guys! I hope you are having a good day! The weather is cooler, the leaves are changing, and it's really starting to feel like fall! Well, at least for a couple of the weekend and early next week we will be seeing the 80's again! Gotta love this ever changing weather!

I have a card to share with you today. I loved the color challenge this week over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. It is a color combo that I don't use very often, especially for Christmas cards, but this challenge may have changed that! Here is a look at the colors:

I just love that soft blue and mint green with the grey. It is just so pretty! Here is the card that I came up with:

The blue and green papers that I used on this card have been in my stash for years! I'm not sure why I haven't used them before...I guess they were some of those that I have been saving for the perfect project to come along! I used one of my favorite old $1 bin stamp sets for the tree and the sentiment. I just love that little, simple tree! I added in a little wooden star to the top of the tree, and I thought about adding in some sequins, but I couldn't get it to look anything but cluttered, so I decided against them.

Be sure to check out the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog. They have great challenges to get you going, and they are a great place for Christmas card inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great Thursday - just one more day until the weekend!
