Poinsettia Joy–CTD #266


Hey there, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our host and she has picked a gorgeous color palette for us to work with.

swatch 266

I hadn’t had a chance to use the recently released Joy Photo Card Frame Die-namics die so I got it out for this card. I cut it from Wild Cherry card stock and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock card base, then created a Poinsettia Die-namics flower using Pink Lemonade card stock, Kraft card stock, and Jellybean Green card stock. I adhered some light green gems to the center and adhered the poinsettia to the card base with hot glue.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from this month’s Free With $60 set, Cheerful Christmas Greetings in Wild Cherry ink.


And that’s it from me! 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 CTD266 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
