Christmas Card Throwdown - May colours

Whoosh, that was another week flying by and it's time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown.

This time it's a colour challenge and yummy colours they are too. I'm sure they will inspire you to get creative.

I chose these house stamps from Polka Doodles then I embossed in gold on kraft card. They have lots of detail on them. Then I coloured the windows with yellow pencil crayon.

You'd never know that this gold ribbon says Marks and Spencer on the back! I can't throw anything like that away. I managed to tie the knot and keep the words hidden.

Finally I added a few stars in the sky which gives a little sparkle.

We hope you enjoy our latest challenge and feel inspired to join in. 
Thanks for visting and I hope you have time to get crafty this week. 

I've used:
Polka Doodles - Be neighbourly
Gold embossing powder
Versamark embossing pad
Gold stars


  1. What a brilliant way to use it for the colour challenge. You made a dorable card with houses and lights :-)) Hugs, Andreja

  2. Just right for the colour challenge and it makes for an unusual Christmas card. I have those quirky house stamps lurking somewhere in my stash, not used for ages I'm ashamed to say!

  3. Thanks for dropping by my blog and for giving me a gentle reminder of CCTD. Love the colour choices I will go and see what I have can dig out to enter this months challenge.
    No I didn't get my beans planted yesterday but as the sun is shining now I must go and do it. Was hoping my son may have popped in to carry the bag of soil down the garden for me. Raised garden beds always need topping up it seems.

  4. Now I'm having a "why didn't I think of that" moment! Absolutely fantastic way to use the colour combo, and a very stylish card. And I love that you recycled the bow! Lucinda

  5. I love those houses! Such a great card for this colour challenge Xx

  6. Quelle magnifique idée Alison, sobre et charmant, j'adore, biz
