Retro Sketches #137 & Colour Me Creative Challenge #43

Hey Everyone

Time for another Christmas card for my stash. With the rate I’m going I may actually end up with enough cards this year!  This time I’ve used colours from this weeks colour combo at Colour Me Creative Challenge – colours that I don’t see very often for Christmas, but I think it works quite well.  I’ve combined these colours with the sketch from Retro Sketches.

I’m going to start off with a confession – I’m addicted to Coastal Cabana. I love new toys and it seems that I can’t get enough of Coastal Cabana.  I’ll probably Coastal Cabana myself out and get over it soon, but at the moment I’m loving it.  I’ve gone with a very quick and simple card card that showcases Simply Sketched. Here’s what I came up with:

I’ve gone with some non-traditional colours for my card to mix it up this week.  The colours I’ve gone for are Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquoise – a colour combo that I initially thought would be good for a change from my vintage style.

CASE Study Challenge #50

Hey Everyone

Just a quick one tonight before I tackle my mountain of washing to fold.  This is the last week for CASE Study Challenge’s July muse Dawn Woleslagle.  This is her gorgeous clean card below that I was inspired by:

Not sure why I chose Christmas, but that was what popped into my head after I had looked at my flowery stamp sets and realised they wouldn’t work.  Is it just me or is everyone hanging out for the new catalogue as well?  This is what I came up with:
