Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! I just love these fabulous colors that Denise picked out!  As a matter of fact...I recently ordered a cargo style purse that is black and white with lime green monogram letters!  If I'm going to "pop" a color, it will generally be green! :-)  I'm also a scarf lover and my last purchase was a green scarf!  I'm thinking Denise must have channeled me on this challenge - lol!

Check out this chilly chum from Paper Smooches!  Isn't he cool?  I added a pompom-bedecked hat and a muffler from some Coredinations paper in my scrap pile.  I fussy cut the penguin and layered him over 2 snowflake dies.  This card uses the layout for this week's Retrosketches Challenge.

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!  Welcome, Lynn!  She has a fabulous card you won't want to miss!

You know the drill...if you don't have the exact colors, it's no problem.  Use something close and have fun!  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword CTD217.

What an adorable card, and such a cute little penguin. Love the little pompom atop his winter cap which really ties in your sentiment. Great job.

I was totally channeling you, girlie...hehe! I really need to do some shopping this weekend, and I'm hoping to find me a lime green scarf. I so want an outfit like this!

Your card is freakin' ADORABLE!! Couldn't be any cuter!
