You know what day it is??? It's Color Throwdown Challenge day and check out these scrumptious colors chosen by Vicki! I decided I'd use these colors for a non-traditional version of a Christmas card.
I combined stamps from Reverse Confetti (arrows and polka dots) and Papertrey Ink (pinecones and sentiment). The tag die is new from Reverse Confetti and is popped up with foam dots. The pine bough was fussy cut (Note to self: Don't forgot to order the matching dies next time!). Had to use my crafting knife for the wee little openings. I highlighted the greenery and the pinecones with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen - hard to see in the photo, but adds a hint of sparkle. A really fun CAS card to create!
I know it's a busy time of year, but hope you will allow yourself some mental therapy time and stamp along with us! Remember, you don't have to use exact colors - just something close. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD269 and also link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool.
