CTD217 CAS Christmas

Hi everyone!  I'm this week's hostess on the Color Throwdown Blog.


When I saw this cute outfit on Pinterest, I thought it'd make a great color combo for our challenge this week....two colors plus two neutrals...right up my alley. I hope you like them.


I decided to go very CAS with the colors and made this card using Naturally Merry from Flourishes, some  Moss Green seam binding, pearl finesse swirls, foam tape (the sentiment circle), Night of Navy CS and Classic White CS.

Be sure to check out all the inspiration on the Color Throwdown Blog or by clicking through the individual blogs of all the CTD girls.  The links are here...

Wow! Even if this is very CAS, it's so strikingly perfect!! I love how you showcased the sentiment! I had not even noticed the neat offset text in this sentiment before now! I'm definitely casing this for my personal cards this year! Thanks for the inspiration!!
