Color Throwdown



Are you ready for a festive color combo? Broni is our hostess and has these great metallics paired with a couple of neutrals! I would love to have this "floral" arrangement at my entrance door!  Here is how I interpreted the colors...

!

I knew right away that Our Daily Bread Designs' Winter Collection of 6x6 papers would be perfect for this challenge.  I colored this new nativity stamp from Verve's Weary World with Copics then layered the star with silver glitter cardstock and metallic gold cardstock.  Also went a little loopy with some gold cording.  I clear embossed the sentiment, so this was an easy peasy card to throw together!

We are happy to welcome a new guest designer for the month of December on the Color Throwdown blog!  It's the talented Sue Lelli from the Card Therapy blog!  I look forward to getting to know Sue better and have already enjoyed checking our her card creations!   

Our guest star stamper this week is Joanne James at the Crafty Owl Blog.  Congrats Joanne!
