Color Throwdown meets Paper Player


I'm using the sketch for the current Paper Players challenge and combining it with my sample for the new Color Throwdown challenge which is being hosted by Lori and includes kraft, red, green and chartreuse colors. I'm thrilled to be getting so many Christmas cards done early this year, so chose that theme again! 

I die cut the corner scroll design from Corner It: Holly in kraft card

stock then cut it into smaller sections and arranged it around the wreath. I used the small sprigs of greenery from the Sweet Orange Holiday set and the holly and berries from Corner It: Holly set to tuck in around the JOY letters.

STAMPS: The Joy of Noel, Corner It: Holly, Sweet Orange Holidays.

INK: Simply Charteuse, Ripe Avocado, New Leaf, Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean, Pure Poppy.

PAPER: Bitty Big: Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White, Classic Kraft (Ink to Paper).

DIES: The Joy of Noel, Corner It: Holly, Sweet Orange Holidays (Ink to Paper); Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things).

OTHER: Clear Star Gelly Roll pen by Sakura; Glossy Accents. 

We'd love to have you join us at CTD! Be sure and check out what the rest of the design team has created by going to the blog HERE.

                                    Happy stamping!     ~Wanda

Your interpretation of the PP sketch is fabulous Wanda! Love the layers of white on red polka dots and plaid and the gorgeous sentiment built around the wreath. Your card is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad you joined this week's challenge at The Paper Players!

This is just so pretty....your attention to detail (like centering the plaid) makes this card extra-special!!! I love the foliage as well as that amazing sentiment! Great way to use the sketch too! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Players this week!
