Christmas greetings in March. Forgive the dorky blog title, but I couldn't help thinking of the Italian flag as I coloured in the sentiment of this card!
Anyone who takes even the tiniest bit of notice of my blog on an ongoing basis has probably noticed by emphasis on colour. My biggest challenge is when palettes combines similar colours with different tonal bases, e.g. red and pink, or in this case cucumber green and mint/teal. Gets my brain going, and is probably good for me!
I'm finding it very therapeutic having the continued motivation to make Christmas cards all year round, so it was nice to be able to 'smash a few challenges' together with this card. I'll be honest I thought I'd made an almighty mistake when I added the snowflake. Then I abandoned it, went out for a few hours, and came back resolved to try and make the best of it. I'm glad I did, I'm proud of it now.
