Merry Christmas - Color Throwdown Challenge #655


Hello, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Susie is our hostess this week and she's chosen a SWEET pastel palette for us to play with.

I actually love these colors for Christmas so I made my first Christmas card of 2021 for this challenge.

To begin, I cut a bunch of Holly Berries Die-namics from Sno Cone and Cotton Candy card stock, and sponged with the matching ink and on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, I drew a circle using A2 Circle STAX Die-namics and adhered the panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base.

Next I joined two leaves together with hot glue and adhered each set to the card front using the circle as a guide until it was complete. The pink berries were added, as was the sentiment banner, cut from Cement Gray card stock with Elegant Folded Banner Die-namics and stamped with a sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes and Extreme Black hybrid 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 #CTD655 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd655 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!
