Color Throwdown #169


Good Morning everyone...are you ready for some FABULOUS Color Throwdown Colors??? Lori is our hostess this week and she has selected such gorgeous colors!!! I hope you have a little time to play...I would love to see what you create!!

I thought the challenge colors would be perfect for these adorable polar bears from Stampendous called Polar Path. They were colored with Copics, glitter was added to the hat fur and Flower Soft was used for the snow.  The background was embossed with a snowflake folder and the ribbon was laced through the holes of the background diecut. The brown twine and button finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Shopping Our Stash - Christmas or Winter related
2. The Cheerful Stamped Pad - Who's wearing Santa's hat?
3. Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - Baby, it's cold outside!
5. Penny Black and More - All creatures great and small
