Color Throwdown #270


Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge.  Wanda is our hostess this week and she has picked such pretty non- traditional Christmas colors for us to play with!!!



I used the sweet little gingerbread couple from Paper Smooches Giddy Gumdrops set....they were embossed with white ep on kraft card stock and the bows were stamped with gumball green. The snowflakes from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamp set  were embossed with silver ep and the Christmas washi tape and silver cording 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 to add CTD270 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog
