November - Colour



Hi there, it's Gill here again, this time with a colour challenge for you, 
and it's a little different to the usual traditional colours.
We would love to see what you come up with for this colour combo ...


My teammates in the Design Team have worked hard
creating some beautiful examples for your inspiration ...

Here's a quick reminder of our rules:
  • We are a Christmas card challenge - please post only Christmas or winter-related cards.
  • Please mention Christmas Card Throwdown in your post and provide a link so that others can join our challenge too.
  • Please link to your blog post and NOT your entire blog.
  • Your project must be new - no back links please.
  • The challenge will close at midnight GMT/7:00 pm Eastern time on the Friday before the start of the next challenge.
  • You may combine this challenge with up to 10 other challenges.
  • Please turn off word verification so that we may comment on your card more easily. We realise that you may use it for safety reasons, however it can be very frustrating when commenting on many challenge participants. We strongly suggest using comment moderation as a friendlier alternative.

We look forward to you joining our challenge!


Deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) Friday 1st December, that's 7.00pm EDT.
