52CCT October Color Challenge

Hello friends - happy weekend!!
This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - 52CCT
we have a color challenge for you.
Take a look at this fun palette:

I used the pinks, the lighter blue and green for my card

The image and sentiment are from a new release digital set
at Deedee's Digis called "Ugly Sweaters". I hand-drew the wonky frame 
around the sentiment so that it would stand out a bit more.
I colored it up with my Stampin' Blendabilities markers
in Melon Mambo (light & medium), Old Olive (light & medium)
and Coastal Cabana (light & medium).  

This is a tall and skinny card measuring 3 1/2" x 7 ".
I kept it flat  (no embellishments) so that it will be easy to send out.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafting from the Heart #39 - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles  - Pink Christmas (noticeable amount of pink)
Paper Pretties PWC331 - CAS
Sister Act Card Challenge #78 - Anything Goes (sponsored by Deedee's Digis)

My lovely 52CCT DT pals have also made some wonderful
Christmas cards to share with you using this fun color combo.
Please go check them out and say "hi" while you're there.
I hope you will decide to join us this week.
I can't wait to see what you make!!
Til next time...hugs and merry crafting! D
