Have a Cool Yule

Hey, there, peeps! Today I have a card for three challenges. First, it's the last Color Throwdown of the year. Our Lil' Inker, Laura, chose this week's colors and here they are:

It's also Wednesday Stamp Club over at the MFT Member Forum on SCS. Today's challenge is "Winter Wonderland".

And finally, I'm using Mojo Monday Sketch #168 for my layout. I flipped the base card, but it's there :)

I stamped the bear from Cool Yule on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and did minimal coloring with Copic markers, then I paper piece his scarf. I used the Oval Chain Die-namics die for the little horizontal element and the Snowflake Trio Die-namics die along with a button from the Chocolate Kiss collection and some red and white baker's twine. The sentiment was stamped on the end of the Textile Rectangle Die-namics die. Makes a nice little frame for it, don't you think?

And here are the few Copics I used.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD122 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week.
