Color Throwdown Challenge #372

Hello everyone!! Can you believe it's Wednesday again?? The days are going sooo fast and I'm really behind with my Christams stuff...the tree isn't up yet, the cards aren't finished, and I haven't even thought about baking!! Oh will get done eventually. I'm hoping my Fairy Godmother  will show up pretty soon....I'll make her a list...LOL!!! Anyway....It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge!!! Barbara is our hostess and she has picked a bright and festive color combo for us to play with this week!!

My card features several stamp sets...I used the tiny stamps and the challenge colors to create a festive motif!! I started with the center stamp and pool party ink. Then I stamped the Pink Passion leafy image at the corners of the center stamp and then the crumb cake images inbetween the pink images. The silver flower was stamped at the end of the pink image and the pool party fleur de lis was stamped at the end of the crumb cake image. I just eyeballed the placement of the stamps but you can use a compass to mark the placement with a pencil. The sparkly silver dot was added to the center. 

This card was created with the same technique,  same colors, and some of the same stamps...the center stamp was is different has  an open area to stamp a sentiment. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD372 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #372 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
