Color Throwdown

The Color Throwdown challenge  has a great color combo this week...thanks to Broni - our hostess with the mostest!  I decided to create another Christmas card using these non-traditional colors in a snowflake collage.

I'm also playing along with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  After stamping the background, I embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

STAMPS: Peace and Joy (ODBD)
PAPER: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Night of Navy, Silver glitter CS (SU)
INK: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Night of Navy
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug EF, Snowflake dies by ODBD, Dimensional bling stickers by Jolee's, Brad by MME, Grommet tag die by Spellbinders. don't have to have the exact colors.  Use something close and then link it up on the Color Throwdown blog using the linking tool at the bottom of the post.  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword, CTD264.
