Color Throwdown Challenge #271

Hello's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! This week Barbara is our hostess and she has picked some pretty, festive colors for us to play with!!! I thought the colors screamed Christmas so I made a Christmas card with a Taylored Expressions Christmas stamp set called Penguin Pals...isn't the little penguin adorable!!!

The penguin and Christmas tree image was colored with Copics and glitter was added to the Santa hat and the star. Jen's Deconstruction Sketch #127 was used along with the papers and card stock from Taylored Expressions December Bundled Up Project Pantry kit. The snowflake was cut out of Riding Hood Red card stock with Taylored Expressions Make a Snowflake die... a pearl was added to the center and the  hemp cording finishes 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 CTD271 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
