Color Throwdown #251


 Hello everyone....it's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Lynn is the hostess this week and she has picked some bold and beautiful colors....I was a little nervous about this color combo but when I found the winter papers by Little Yellow Bicycle, I was in business!!!


My card features stamps and diecuts from Papertrey Ink's In the Meadow set and the
Mojo Monday # 302 sketch. A little sewing was done around the edges and the ribbon and diecut snowflake finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure tp add CTD251 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
