Color Throwdown & SFYTT


It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Tammy has some wonderful colors which I used for a winter themed card!


I took my Soft Sky ink pad and swiped it on the inside of a 5x7 snowflake EF and ran the card base through the Big Shot.  I colored and fussy cut one of my fave winter snow bears then used Jen's layout for her November Sketch For You To Try challenge.  Some Crystal Effects on the nose and some Polar White Flower Soft on the pompom added some texture details.   The sentiment on the inside is "Warm Winter Wishes" from SU's Snowflakes set.

Be sure and check out the other design team members' creations on the Color Throwdown blog for more inspiration, and stop by to say "Hi" to Lynn Mercurio, who is our guest designer for November!
No worries if you don't have the exact colors.  Use something close and have fun!  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword CTD219.

STAMPS: Whippersnapper, Snowflakes by SU (sentiment inside)
PAPER: Bermuda Bay, White, X-Press It Blending Card, ? Green
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky
ACCESSORIES: Snowflake border punch by MS, Glitter Snowflake Ornament by ArtMinds (Michael's), Crystal Effects, Polar White Flower Soft
