Color Throwdown Challenge #167

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! It's my turn to host the challenge and I got to pick the colors...Whoohoo!!!! I found my inspiration from the beautiful October Afternoon dp called Good Cheer. I hope you have a little time to play today...I would love to see what you create with these colors!!!! 
My card featrues  the adorable Rubbernecker Snowman called Zac #596-01. He was colored with copics and Pool party was sponged around the edges. The ribbon, distressing, sewing, punched snowflake, and button finishes it off.

This is such a fun card! I love that image and the colors look fabulous with it. How did you get the red behind the open spaces on the die? That looks really cool.

Hi Joan! SUPER cute card! I love those colors and you really made them look awesome! Love all your details too... :-)

I should have known you'd pick a great colour combo, Joan, you never make a wrong move with colour, and these look great together. This is a gorgeous card, I just love that bow and the way you framed your snowman with the white nestie and red backing.

Didnt realise you'd had earthquakes and tornados so close to home, very scary especially so soon after the fires. If you do dig a basement, make sure it has a crafting section, lol. CoB

Broni said...

How cute is that snowman! What a great card!

Kristin Eberline said...

Joan, this palette is AWESOME! Seriously, I'm fairly certain I'll be designing a pack of patterned paper using it :0] Your card is simply ADORABLE! That little snowman with the birds is too charming, and I love how you sponged the blue around him. Gave it a nice, frosty feel ♥ That paper is DELISH...I totally see why it was your inspiration for this week's colors! Great choice.
