Color Throwdown #220!



Hello!  We have a fabulous new color combo for you this week at the Color Throwdown hosted by the fabulous Wanda!  I think this combo is just perfect for Christmas cards/projects which I still have a ton to make!  This is what I came up with this week:


I used this adorable stocking that I found in the Silhouette Online Store ~ 4 Christmas Icons by Lori Whitlock.  I just LOVE her stuff!  I cut out 3 stockings using Jillibean Soup Winter Tortellini and Spinach Soup dp.  I added a die cut star and button to each.  The background is embossed with the PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate, and the sentiment comes from the PTI set In The Meadow.  

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your creations on the Color Throwdown Blog HERE, and make sure you check out the rest of the amazing DT projects while you're there!

Well, I have a 5 year old in the house today.  Yesterday was my youngest's birthday.  We took him out to dinner last night, but we're having a Batman/gymnastic party on Saturday:)  I'm trying to get some stuff made for the party so I'd better run!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Your card is so cute Kerri!! I love your stockings and how you sponged them with the kraft. I also like how you took a softer approach with the colors!! Nice job!!
