Wishing You Peace, Love & Joy - CTD #373

Hi, everyone, welcome to the last Color Throwdown Challenge of 2015! The team will be taking the rest of December off to spend time with friends and family and we’ll be back with the first challenge of 2016 on January 6th with some exciting news to share :)

This week’s challenge is kind of a free-for-all—create any Christmas project using any colors you want. Easy peasy!!

For my card, I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut some Ranger watercolor paper with Blueprints 20 Die-namics, stamped the holly image from Hand Lettered Holiday with Black Licorice hybrid ink and Wild Cherry dye ink. I colored the leaves with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers, matted it with Wild Cherry card stock, and popped it up on foam mounting tape on the base. The sentiment is a combination of Merry Messages stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and Peace, Love, Joy Die-namics, cut from red glitter paper, all popped up on foam.

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 CTD373 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd373 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented December Guest Designer, Torico!

  1. Absolutely love the card.. I am wondering, though.. Is your site messed up right now, or is it just me? All your feeds are going down the center of my screen. If anyone knows of a fix, please let me know, because I am unable to read anything. I can see the card, so that's awesome. ^_^ (just don't know if it's something on my end or not) Thanks so much for sharing.. sorry for going off topic. ♥♥♥

  2. Beautiful card... I love the holly background! And the glittery "joy" is fantastic!


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
