Merry and Bright - Color Throwdown Challenge #573

Hi, everyone, welcome to the last
Color Throwdown Challenge of 2019! The team is taking the rest of the month off to enjoy the holidays and we’ll be back on January 1 for the first challenge of 2020! This week, Broni is our hostess and she challenging us with these festive colors based on her yummy inspiration piece.

I’d had the kernel of this idea in my mind for a while and I decided to bring it to life today. I cut a bunch of Fab Foliage  Die-namics from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green card stocks, arranged them on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel and adhered them with glue. The berries were added with a red Copic marker and a gold gel pen. This panel was trimmed with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 and adhered to Gold Sparkle

To begin, I cut lots of Fab Foliage Die-namics from Gumdrop Green and Sour Apple card stocks, arranged them on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel until I was happy, adhered them down and added berries with a Copic marker and gold gel pen. I trimmed it with an A2 Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 1 and matted it with Gold Sparkle card stock cut with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2. I then cut Merry and Bright Die-namics from Poppy card stock and twice from white scrap card stock, stacked them with spray adhesive, then adhered it to the card front. I popped it up on a Black Licorice card stock base with foam tape and was done!

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 CTD573 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd573 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 super talented December Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta!
