Santa Baby - CTD #169

Here we are at another Color Throwdown challenge! This week, another new member is hosting. Lori is challenging us to use these colors in a project.

I decided to bring out an older MFT set: Santa Baby. I gotta tell ya, I love this set. So sassy! I totally let my patterned paper do the work here--and why not? It's perfect! I stamped the sentiment on a Notched Tag Die-namics die cut and attached it with a button andsome vintaged-up Maraschino Red baker's twine to my seam binding bow. I used the recently released Crown Border Die-namics die for the border and distressed up all the other edges.

Here's the inside with the image from the set along with another sentiment. Heh, heh.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. 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 CTD169 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, including November's Guest Designer.
