Color Throwdown 172

It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week Kerri Michaud (my sweet online comrade, fellow nurse, dirty girl and lover of Jeff Gordon - lol) - is hosting!
Now, I'll have to admit I was a little sparse with my use of pumpkin pie, but it's the snowflake BG! Some Crystal Effects on his nose, Flower Soft on the pompom and an embossed BG all add a bit of texture to this 5 1/4" square card. Coloring was done with Copics. I've never had a Copic coloring class before, but highly recommend the book, "Copic Coloring Guide" by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker for great instructions and photos.
Remember, you don't have to have the exact colors listed...anything close will work! For more inspiration, be sure to check out the rest of the design team's awesome creations! This will be our last challenge for 2011, but we'll be back in 2012 with a fresh new look!
