Color Throwdown #219

swatch 219

Hello there!  It’s time for Color Throwdown #219, and this week it’s my turn to host the challenge.  I guess I’m just partial to aqua blue… I seem to pick color combos with it a lot!  I hope you’ll like this challenge, too.  Stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge info and play along with us.

CTD219 black

I have no clue where the idea came from, but the notion for this card popped into my head earlier this week so I gave it a try.  I pulled out my fabulous By the Letter Die-Namics die for the letters and ran them through my Xyron for adhesive then dumped on some ultrafine glitter.  The Christmas tree is from the Silhouette online store, and I sponged the edges of it with some Peeled Paint ink and wrapped some silver thread around it for garland.  I also used my Rounded Banner STAX Die-Namics and the Small Scallop Border on my card.  The white snowflake-embossed piece is spritzed with some Perfect Pearls for added sparkle, but darn if I couldn’t get that to show up in the photo!  :)

Check out the creations from my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration with these colors…
