Color Throwdown Meets Mojo Monday




It's Wednesday and that means there's another Color Throwdown Challenge up for grabs! Keva has some interesting colors that I'll admit had me stumped for awhile, until I saw the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I loved the simple sketch by Debbie Carriere and went with my fave new die - Spellbinder's poinsettia - to crank out another Christmas card! I sponged the edges with Elegant Eggplant ink then curled the edges slightly with the ball end of a petal roller. The sentiment is one of the new elegant fonts from Verve's Bright Spirits set. The Vintage cream base was dry embossed using the Victoria CB EF. The gray leafy flourish die is from Cheery Lynn Designs. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other CTD samples by the fabulous design team!

I like the colors on this card Wanda-and you truned it into a very pretty christmas card-the poinsettia die is my new fave as well-but that could change when I get the lacy pennants and crank out some tree cards (lol)

That poinsettia is fabulous! It really stands out against the white background. And, I love how you used the flourish as a stand-in for leaves.
