Joy–Color Throwdown Challenge #473


Hello and welcome to the last Color Throwdown Challenge of 2017! We’ll be taking the rest of December off so the team can spend more time with family and friends. We’ll be back on January 3rd with the first challenge of 2018. Our hostess this week is Miss Broni, who has a lovely palette for us to work with based on her equally lovely inspiration piece.


I needed another Christmas card and decided to go all CAS for it. I’m using a Sweet Tooth card stock base, Cactus green card stock for the wreath, and Kraft card stock for the sentiment die cut.


I cut lots of leaves using Fab Foliage Die-namics and created my wreath. Joy Die-namics was cut three times, adhered together, and popped up on foam. I added Blush 4mm sequins for the pink berries but decided they weren’t quite pink enough so I darkened them with a Copic marker. And that’s it!

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 CTD473 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd473 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, Debra James!
