May Your Christmas Be Filled With Love and Laughter - Color Throwdown #171

Ready for some Color Throwdown fun? It's that time again and this week Wanda is our host. She's chosen some colors inspired by MME Lost & Found Christmas. LOVE the vintage colors!!!

I let the papers and my MFT Die-namics dies do the work on my card :) I'm using the Dizzy Doily Die-namics die for the circle element and part of the Layered Labels set for my sentiment. And, of course, my favorite "poinsettia" die set for this year, Upsy Daisy Die-namics :) The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas, as is the one on the inside of the car.

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 CTD171 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 December's Guest Designer.
