Color Throwdown Challenge #321

Hello everyone!!! Hope all is well with you and yours!!! I have been packing up Thanksgiving stuff so I can get out the Christmas boxes tomorrow.....I  have 15 large plastic storage boxes  full so I better get busy!! Since I hate to throw stuff away, a lot of my decorations are about 30 years old....they all have such wonderful memories attached to them!! I don't use a lot of them but I know where they are just in case...LOL!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Chalenge!! Broni is our hostess this week and I just love the festive shimmery colors she picked!!!

My card features the O Christmas Tree dies from Taylored Expressions...the back layer was cut out of Chocolate Truffle and the top cutly layer was cut out of gold shimmery cardstock. Silver pearls were added to the tree and gold pearls were added to the snowflakes..they were cut out with the TE Make a Snowflake die and adhered to the silver sparkly paper in the background. 

The snow was created with the TE Build a Scene - Rolling Hills dies and white sparkly paper and the sentiment is from the TE Sparkle and Cheer stamp set

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 CTD321 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
