Color Throwdown #171

Our Color Throwdown challenge this week is being hosted by Wanda, and she's chosen some great Christmas colors for us to work with this week. I pulled out my old Wassail paper pad from Basic Grey and found these colors, so I ran with them! The sentiment here on my card is from the new Sentimental Christmas stamp set from Flourishes and I embellished with some gorgeous caramel-colored satin ribbon and a few felt poinsettias I found in my stash.

As a finishing touch, I spritzed the whole card with some Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer. Hard to see in the photo, but looks awesome in real life! :)

See what my Throwdown sisters have created today to inspire you....


We'd love to see your creations using these colors! As always, if you don't have the exact colors specified just use whatever you have that is similar.... it's not rocket science, anyway! Just have fun, and get inky! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
