Wishing You Peace This Holiday–Color Throwdown Challenge #471


Hello there! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has a fun color combo for us based on this trendy inspiration piece.


I decided to go dramatic with my design by using a Black Licorice card stock base and card front. I popped the card front up on foam tape on the base, then added my Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock, Gold Sparkle card stock, and Sweet Tooth card stock.


I stamped the sentiment from Dashing Deer stamp set with Versamark on a strip of Translucent Vellum and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. To adhere, I wrapped the ends around the card front and taped them down on the back side, avoiding the use of adhesive on the vellum since it’s hard to conceal.

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 CTD471 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd471 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 November Guest Designer, Kelly Lunceford!
