Color Throwdown #373




Hello friends!  The weeks and the year are just flying by, and here we are on another Wednesday and it’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge!  It’s our last challenge for the year, and so we’re taking it easy on everyone this week…


For today’s challenge, all you have to do is create something Christmas-y in any colors!  You can even share something you’ve already made and posted in the past month.  BUT, please be sure to check out all the details for the challenge this week on the CTD blog because there are a few modifications to the guidelines this time around.

So, I’ve been dying to show you my card for today… I actually made it way back on the first weekend in November when I was away on a stamping retreat weekend!  I was so happy with how it turned out!


I found this sketch from September on my Pinterest board as inspiration, and used the fabulous new Merry & Bright stamp set and matching Confetti Cuts die from Reverse Confetti for my card design.  The watercolor wash in the background uses Ranger Distress inks…. I think I used Pine Needles and Iced Spruce, but like I said… I made this about 6 weeks ago!  LOL  I also used the Reverse Confetti Winter Words Coordinates stamps to complete the “Joy to the World” phrase.

Please be sure to visit the CTD blog today for all the details, and please visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration….

I just had to pop over from the challenge blog to tell you how much I love this.
Love how the red ornament pops off the page against that water coloured background and the black and white banner strip.

Tammy, this card is just gorgeous! I love the soft watercolored background and the way it makes that bright Christmas light really pop off of the card!

So pretty Tammy. Love that big Christmas bulb... the color wash background looks great with the white embossed circles. Also love the striped paper.

Please find your "mojo" because I love following your blog on a daily basis. I see so much inspiration here and so enjoy seeing what you create. Please DONT stop card making. I'd be so disappointed if you do. I have to agree with your choices for your year of your favorites for 2015. I like each one too. Happy new year for 2016 to you Tammy.
