52CCT - Color Challenge #16 {Navy, Light Blue and White}

Hello and happy weekend everyone!  Time for another great challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  This week we have a color challenge for you using some great non-traditional colors - Navy, Light Blue and White.  You can use neutrals with these colors (such as grey, black, tan or brown) but try to limit other colors on your card and focus on the main color combo.  Lots of fun and creative possibilities await you with this color combo!  I don't know about you, but this combo always make me think of snow, snowflakes and snowmen.  So I reached for my favorite snowman set called  "Snow Much Fun" by Stampin Up to make this weeks card to share with you.  Let's have a look:
here's the inside too:
I've decided to start using more of my DSP stash on the insides of my cards too.  No sense in just having it sit in my craft closet waiting to be used.  Plus the more I use up - the more I can buy later.  If you haven't guessed, I'm a DSP-holic.  LOVE patterned paper - sometimes I buy it with no idea what I will do with it, I just love it so I have to get it :o)  Sorry, I digress... back to the card at hand.  My color combo is Midnight Muse, a 2012-2014 In color that is very close to Navy, and Bashful Blue.  Bashful Blue is not one of my favorite colors but I do love it with the MM.  I colored in the snowman's hat and boots using the MM ink pad and a blender pen. The scarf and birds were also colored with a blender pen and some ink from the BB ink pad.  I couldn't leave the nose un-colored so I used just a tiny bit of orange to touch it up a bit.  

Hope you like today's card and I've inspired you to play along with us this week at 52CCT!  If you need more inspiration to get you going all you have to do is pop on over the 52CCT challenge site and see what the other ladies have prepared for you.  BTW the watermark on my card is from my talented friend (and fellow DT member) Mynnette Kitchen - isn't it fabulous?! Thanks Mynn!  I feel so professional now that I'm using it :o)  

Gotta run - lots to do this weekend.  Hope to be visiting you soon to see your fabulous Christmas cards using our color combo this week.  Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D


  1. Mr Snowman is just wonderful! I really like his dotty scraf and coordinating background paper. The little bluebirds are so cute. The inside is great - I like that you've used the DSP.

    I'm not good with using DSP - I have lots, but tend to hoard it! Love the watermark ;)

  2. I really like your choice of pattern paper, Danielle. It really makes your card go from cute to super-cute! Great job!

  3. I love the Bashful Blue and it looks gorgeous teamed with your snowman Danielle - Jacqueline xx

  4. Hi Danielle - we both went for snowmen, great minds think alike eh?! What a fabulous card, I love the way you've done the birdie snowball circle! Wonderful inside too!
    Have a great week! {{{{hugs}}}} Ruth x

  5. I just adore the fabulous layout, Danielle! The snowman is colored beautifully, too! HUGS and hope you had a great weekend! :)

  6. Fabulous, a wonderful snowman image.

  7. The snowman and his birdie friends brought a smile to my face. I especially like how you highlighted the one bird with the snowball, and cut the navy mat to frame it as well as the rectangular main panel. Nice job! :)

  8. Love these images - super cute. That polka dot paper is perfect for the background too - so 'snowy'. Love your card (as usual!)
