Another Wednesday means another Color Throwdown Challenge is up and running. Barbara is our hostess this week and was inspired by this great winter scene to use red, gray and black. I used the new Viva la Verve sketch for December and wanted this sentiment to be the focal point. I can't seem to get enough Christmas cards created this year (Note to self: start earlier next year!).
I pretty much let the patterned papers do the talking and embellished with snowflakes die cut from silvery white glitter cardstock. Here is what I used:
STAMPS: Richly Blessed (Verve).
PAPER: Tis the Season 6x6 pad by Echo Park.
INK: Versafine Onxy Black.
DIES: Stitched circle, rectangle and scalloped border by Lil' Inker Designs; Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by My Favorite Things; Let it Snow (snowflakes) by Reverse Confetti.
We're happy to announce that the talented Debra James is our guest designer for December! Welcome Debra! (Edited to add...she has the most adorable card for today's challenge!).
I also want to give a shout out to our star stamper this week - Kathy Straw! Stop by her blog HERE to say hello.
We'd love to have you join us in the challenge! For more details on how to play along, head over to the Color Throwdown blog and you'll find the information on the right sidebar. You can also visit the rest of the design team's creations for more inspiration by clicking on the links below:
