Color Throwdown #170

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


My card features three darling Art Papers from Memories in the Making ATC Collection...they were  distressed, sewn, and layered together on the navy snowflake dp from Little Yellow Bicycle. One corner was rounded and the lace, yellow polka dot ribbon, yellow Candy Dots, Prima poinsettia, and punched leaves finish it off.  
Recipe:  Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Vanilla, ATC Art Papers
Accessories: Sewing Machine, Lace, Ribbon, Candy Dots, Prima Poinsettia, Martha Stewart Leaf Punches, Stampin Up! Corner Rounder Punch

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD170 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
