Color Throwdown Challenge #363

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!! Wanda is our hostess and she has picked some delicate, soft colors for us to play with: pale mint green, saffron yellow, and ivory. I almost made a wedding card but decided to get started on my Christmas cards instead. 

My card features the dove dies from Impressions Obsession. They were cut out of vanilla cardstock and popped up on the pale yellow background that was embossed with a Sizzix brick die and sponged with barely banana. 

The peace sentiment die and the fern, both from IO, were cut out of a pale green cardstock and the tiny rhinestones for the doves eyes finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD363 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd363 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 

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