Color Throwdown #220


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The wonderful Wanda is our hostess this week and she picked some gorgeous colors....just perfect for a Christmas card!!!


I used the Sweet Sunday sketch #172...isn't it a fab CAS design!!! Seasons Greetings papers by Echo Park were used along with a sentiment sticker from the Little Yellow Bicycle...the Martha Stewart Punch was used for the snowflake and the button and twine finish it off. Pretty simple but I looove the sketch and will be using it a lot this Christmas!!!

This is a very elegant card Joan. I love your style as you can do anything. I have a hard time with CAS. I never feel it is finished but you do it beautifully.

You did an awesome job with these colors Joan!! I like the way you got the turquoise in there. Nice papers, and it has a Christmas wrapping paper theme to me.

Pinning this for future reference, Joan! I just love this design, and it will definitely help me put some of my patterned paper stash to good use. Love the snowflake punch and sentiment banner, too!
