Color Throwdown Challenge #221


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The fabulous Bar is our hostess this week and she picked some gorgeous Christmas color for us to play with. I have had a few sheets of Gumbal Green sitting around for a few months and I finally got to use it!!! I am on a roll with Christmas cards and thanks to Bar, I have another one finished...whoohoo!!!


My card features the cute Santa stamp from a retired Stampin Up set....it's from a 1999 set called Star Santa. Santa was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots over another stamped Santa. The sentiment is from the same set and I used this weeks Retro Sketch #40.  The papers are from Echo Park's Holly Jolly Christmas and the wood snowflake and ribbon finish it off.

Be sure to add CTD221 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
