Color Throwdown Challenge #323

Hello many of you are finished with your Christmas shopping,  Christmas cards, baking, decorating, wrapping presents....not me!!!!! I take a few steps forward and fall back about 10...the good thing is I have another week to get it all done. The bad thing is that I only have one week left to finish....LOL!!!! is Wednesday and you know what that's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! This will be our last challenge for this year....we will be back Janurary 7 for the first challenge in 2015!!!! 

 Lori is our hostess this week and she has picked colors that would work for any type of card: Pale Pink, Rose, Green, and Kraft.  Since I still need a few Christmas cards, I went with a holiday theme. 

I used this month's SFYTT on the Reverse Confetti Blog. The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and enamel dots were added to the centers. The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti set called Seasonal was stamped on the bottom part of a RC Tag Me, Too diecut and the sewing, ribbon and hemp 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 CTD323 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.
