Color Throwdown #172

Good morning everyone....are you ready for some AWESOME Color Throwdown Colors??? The fabulous Kerri is our hostess this week and she has selected some awesome bright and pretty and perfect for a winter scene!!!! I hope you have a little time to play...I would love to see what you create!!

My card features an adorable Poppy Stamps was colored with Copics and Stickles was added to the *snow* and the fur on the caps and boots. The background paper is from Echo Parks Holly Jolly Christmas and the punched snowflakes and pearls finish it off. I used the Mojo Monday's #219 sketch and did a little sewing for the Creative Craft Challenge.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Deep Ocean Challenge - let it snow
2. The Pink Elephant - snowflakes and sparkle
3. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - sparkle and shine
4. Gingerloft Challenge - Winter or Christmas

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. Be sure to add CTD172 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
