May colours

There is a new color challenge up over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, this week using the new non traditional holiday colors of turquoise and gold.

I went with a sort of beachy Christmas theme, playing up my turquoise in the swim trunks and flip flop, and using some sea shells and sentiment to play up the gold.

I can’t wait to see how you color this (in my opinion) difficult challenge.  It took me honestly a little bit to figure this one out, but I couldn’t be more happy with the finished results.  I hope you are inspired instantly by these colors.  Till then, happy crafting.



  1. EK – llove your double meaning sentiment!! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to go on a tropical holiday with shorts and flipflops!!! Yours and Fabioli’s gold embossing has inspired me! Thanks for sharing!!! -Donna


  2. Hi EK, this is such a fun idea, I’d never have though to go this way! I love it though, sorry you found the colour combo difficult, it seems to have divided people! But it was worth it, you’ve come up with such a great and unusual card!
