Color Throwdown

Don't you just LOVE this delightful color combo that Broni has thrown down for us this week?! I embraced them for another Christmas card and was in love with the non-traditional color combo!

This is the last Color Throwdown challenge for 2013, but be assured we will be back in 2014 with more awesome colors and a new guest designer!  I want to thank Cindy Lawrence for her gorgeous card samples the past two months!  She totally rocks!

This card is all about favorites for me.  Anyone following my blog knows I love this SU Gorgeous Grunge set for fun backgrounds.  The snowflake die is another favorite winter element that is so fun to layer.  I also love the funky fonts in Julee's Joyous Noel stamp set (Verve), so couldn't resist using a sentiment from that set.  I'm a big fan of Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and the current one really jumped out at me.  What a great layout! play along with the Color Throwdown challenge, you don't have to use exact colors - just something that's close.  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD 272 and also link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool.
