Color Throwdown #317

Hello everyone!!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! It's my turn to host the challenge and I picked some pretty dramatic colors....I just love how the blue and purple pop against the black in the inspiration photo!!! 

My card features the O Christmas Tree die from Taylored was cut out of bashful blue and lavender lace cardstock and layered over the Oreo background which was embossed with the TE Snowfall Embossing Folder. Blue Stickles was a added to the raised areas to mimic the shimmer of the inspiration photo and a little was added to the star. 

The shimmery white enamel dots were added to the tree and the sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Sparkle and Cheer stamp set was added.  The snow at the bottom was cut with the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die and Stickles was added along the top ridge for a little glam.

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 CTD317 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
